Last month we headed down to San Antonio, TX for ISTE
, the International Society for Technology in Education Conference. ISTE is the premier membership association for educators and education leaders engaged in advancing excellence in learning and teaching through innovative and effective uses of technology. This is the biggest education technology conference in North America!
We had visitors from around the world stop by the Crick Software booth, including many people who were new to our products, and of course some familiar faces. Here is a quick wrap-up of the questions, comments, and excitement we had at the booth!
“This is just the app I was looking for!”
So many districts are getting more and more iPads in their schools, which has increased the need for quality apps that can support independent learning. Many conference attendees loved the Clicker Sentences
app to support sentence building skills for early learning, and Clicker Docs
for topic specific writing with older students. We also launched the WriteOnline app
at ISTE, which teachers at the middle and high school levels enjoyed seeing.
“This will be great for Common Core.”
Both Clicker 6 and WriteOnline are perfect tools to support the Common Core State Standards, which many teachers and administrators were looking for at the conference. For additional information, please visit the Common Core page
on our website.
“How do I get a district-wide Clicker 6 license?”
We met a lot of people who saw Clicker 6 and wanted to know how they could install it on all of their computers, district-wide. To put together a cost-effective district-wide license that met all of their needs, all we needed to know was how many schools were in the district.
We are looking forward to ISTE 2014 in Atlanta next year! For more information on conferences where you can meet us, please visit the conference section of our website.
