Your ISTE 2023 recap from SMART!

ISTELive23 kicked off in Philadelphia this year with a BANG! The theme this year for the show was “Discover your Next” and we embraced that at the SMART Booth. We delivered simple ways to elevate your teaching to engage students in immersive learning experiences with tools, tips, lessons and connection.

We loved connecting with educators and friends, old and new. We were especially thrilled to meet some of our international educators that traveled from all around the world to convene in Philadelphia for this incredible global education summit.

If you weren’t able to connect with us at ISTELive23, here’s what you missed:

Get to know the new SMART Board GX V2

We’re thrilled to debut the SMART Board GX V2 at ISTE Live 2023! Easy to use, deploy and support SMART Board interactive displays provide value and capability like no one else, all at a great price. A solid investment in dynamic collaborative learning so you can break down barriers without breaking the budget.

Not every school receives immense funding for tech. We at SMART strive to deliver engaging learning experiences for ALL students and the SMART GX is perfect for schools and districts that are looking for an affordable solution.

We’re thrilled to announce that the SMART Board GX series won Best of Show at ISTE 2023! Thank you Tech & Learning for the recognition, and to everyone who made #ISTELive so memorable.

Focus on creating accessible learning experience for students

There sure was a buzz surrounding accessibility at ISTELive. We were thrilled to welcome Alex Dunn, Speech Pathologist from Upper Canada District School Board, as well as Marleah Umpleby from TobiiDynavox to the SMART Booth to present on simple ways to increase classroom inclusivity and accessibility tools from SMART.

The importance of creating inclusive classrooms and accessible experiences is only growing. Our commitment to creating accessible digital tools for educators and students will continue to play a huge part in our technology.

Yellow all around

It wouldn’t be a global education summit without Lumio! Our friends at Lumio painted the tradeshow floor yellow with airbrush tattoos. Lumio was everywhere!

We were feeling the love as educators shared their appreciation for Lumio. Check out what this educator thinks about the features and activities within Lumio:

There are so many reasons to love Lumio including three brand-new categories you have to check out: ready-made Brain Breaks and games, music tools from Flat for Education and lesson content from our friends at In the Footsteps of History. And, if you have your own existing lessons, you can now import your PowerPoint files into Lumio, and seamlessly edit your text, images, and content.

As well, Lumio debuted our brand new training platform, Lumio Academy, at ISTE. Get excited for this game-changing learning platform, launching just in time for back to school season.

Making an impact with Philadelphia School Districts

This year at #ISTELive we had the opportunity to join our partners at Visual Sound to bring leaders from local districts together for valuable roundtable conversations. Sharing perspectives on everything from device management to security policy, AI and everything in between, it was a great chance for the teams to learn from one another and take away best practices for tech integration and implementation.

ISTELive23 was a BLAST! We hope to see you there next year as ISTE ‘ventures into the future of learning.” Until then, connect with us on socials and head over to to learn more about our groundbreaking research, innovation and products.
