Maybe it was the bright banner encouraging creative educators to connect or the smiling League of FableVisionaries or the hands-on sessions with new products, but FableVision’s ISTE Booth #1300 was THE place to be.
What’s ISTE? Besides a big, fun party? ISTE Conference & Expo is a forum in which educators learn, exchange ideas, and survey the field of education technology. The annual event attracts upwards of 18,000 attendees and industry representatives, including teachers, technology coordinators, administrators, library media specialists, teacher educators, and policy makers. Every year the location changes; this year, we packed our bags and headed to Philadelphia.
ISTE is a huge conference for FableVision. It is a time to connect with the FableVision ambassadors and reignite the flames of creativity. We also get a chance to show off new learning tools for the classroom – like My Awesome Publishing Company and Fab@School Maker Studio. This year our partners at TERC, Dig-It! Games, Classroom, Inc., and Lulu, Jr. joined the FableVision booth for hands-on sessions of their games. All these options made for a diverse booth – one hour you might be helping the Zoombinis along to safety, the other you are on a historical Mayan dig site, the next you’re publishing a book, or getting the scoop in the fictional city of Port Douglas.
ISTE is also a time to recharge and further our mission to tell stories that matter, stories that move. FableVision couldn’t do it without its fans, its educators, its creative rebels. For all the folks that stopped by the booth, thank you for being part of our journey to move the world to a better place! You can see more ISTE photos on our Facebook page.
