ISTE 2013 - Inspiration and Innovation

Common Sense Media Meets Tech-Savvy Teachers in Texas

CATEGORIES Common Sense News, Technology Integration

Every year, for the past thirty years, thousands of educators and industry representatives have gathered from around the world for ISTE -- the annual edtech conference and exposition of the International Society for Technology in Education.

Consistently, the keynotes, working sessions and exchange of ideas have always celebrated the potential of technology to transform teaching and learning. Beyond hardware and how to use it, the conversation this year concerned content – or the challenges faced by teachers, tech coordinators, library media specialists and administrators in applying the most effective apps, games, websites, and digital curricula in their connected classrooms.

This was where Common Sense Education joined in. ISTE 2013 was our opportunity to engage with educators about our free resources, and introduce them to an important new one — Graphite (the former name of this website). Check out what we did at ISTE 2013, and let us know your summary if you went, too!
