We’re getting down on new trends in #edtech while sharing ideas with school leaders from around the world.
DENVER, COLORADO — July 28, 2016 — The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference in Denver, Colorado, has all the buzz of a music festival or sporting event, but instead of cheering for their favorite bands or athletes, the folks here are fanatics of technology.
Teachers, administrators, IT specialists, and other school leaders from all over the world have gathered in the (absolutely magnificent) Colorado Convention Center to learn how to leverage new technologies in their schools and classrooms.
“As a local computer company with global aspirations, Bak USA has come to ISTE to improve our understanding of what tech needs to look like in schools and classrooms.”
While big dogs like Microsoft, Dell, Samsung, and Google lead the pack when it comes to digital classroom solutions, there are a more than a hundred other technology companies here influencing the way we think about and use tech. Collectively, the impact that is being made on educators at ISTE is overwhelming, and the future of tech in education is taking shape as we speak.
As a local computer company with global aspirations, Bak USA has come to ISTE to improve our understanding of what tech needs to look like in schools and classrooms. How can teachers leverage technology to best facilitate their students’ understanding? In what ways can students engage technology to take ownership of their own learning?
As we navigate the crowded corridors of the Colorado Convention Center, we are connecting with school leaders from as far away as Saudi Arabia; listening to student voices, expert advice, and progressive perspectives; and imagining the ways we can deliver solutions that will transcend traditional learning opportunities for teachers and students around the world.
