Show Starters

ISTE19 in Philadelphia was a marathon for the Tech & Learning team. Events started the weekend before at the Tech & Learning Leadership Summit. Attendees began the event touring Drexel University’s ExCite Center and FirstHand-Philly, two cutting-edge programs devoted to experimenting in new forms of education technology. The following day involved intense workgroup discussions that touched on everything from the emergence of CTE in schools to the importance of data privacy for students.

The fun continued Sunday night after the keynote as Facebook for Education hosted an event for more than 100 Tech & Learning readers to announce some of their new initiatives. Finally, to wrap things up, the editors celebrated the most inspirational people in edtech for 2019 with a party at Philadelphia’s legendary McGillin’s Olde Ale House.
