What’s new in EdTech

ISTE is THE place to discover what's happening in EdTech and the future of education.

At the SMART booth (#2718), we have some exciting announcements for teachers including a revolutionary integration with Google - you won’t want to miss it.

During the SMART Block Party (1 PM - 3PM on Tuesday, June 27th) we’ll have a whole host of activities, including:

  • The SMART Golfing Green - Check out the new SMART Board GX interactive display and score a hole-in-one on the SMART mini-golf green to be entered to win one for your classroom.
  • The EdTech Podcast Booth - Join the EdShift Podcast and step into the booth to be a guest on the hit education podcast. Get off mute and share your thoughts.
  • The Selfie Contest - Take a selfie in front of our vacation backdrop, post, and tag us on social and you'll be entered to win a pair of Apple AirPods.
  • The Environment Seed Packets - Our interactive displays are designed with the planet in mind. Support tech longevity by picking up an exclusive SMART seed paper to turn your neighborhood green.

I’ll be taking to the show floor to hear from teachers why they love SMART and the difference that technology has made for their teaching. If you see me around, make sure to say hi and let’s chat about SMART and be sure to check out the event agenda here:

Happy Hour with Teq

We’ll be joining our partners at Teq for their second annual ISTE Happy Hour! See Educator Alexander and EduMatch for Karaoke upstairs, hangout with our co-sponsors in the lounge downstairs, and bowl with your friends on vintage bowling lanes, all while enjoying amazing food and an open bar. See you there!

June 26, 5:30-9:30 p.m at the Harp & Crown.

History and culture in Philly

I’m a huge history buff and Philly has been at the top of my travel list for quite a while. I’m looking forward to experiencing architectural marvels like the Cathedral of Learning and Independence Hall, historical wonders like the Liberty Bell, the Betsy Ross House, the culinary wonders of a Philly Cheese Steak.
