Teachers and school administrators appreciate the value of a game plan more than most. If you’re heading to Philadelphia next week for the 2019 ISTE conference, these tips will give you a head start on using your limited time wisely.

1. Know the Lay of the Land (and Build Your Itinerary!)

Connecting over 300 companies and developers in edtech, ISTE is the perfect place to visualize what technology can do for your learning community. But with so many exhibitors present, getting lost in the middle of the exhibit hall without a plan could really dampen your experience. 

With 20+ hours to navigate the exhibit hall, you’ll have plenty of time to make several key connections that could benefit your school in the long run. If you have any interest in saving time while lesson planning, intervening in student achievement in a timely manner, and making data-informed decisions about curriculum—Kiddom should definitely be one of them!

Six of our team members (see them below!) will be on the floor to answer all your questions about addressing your school’s needs with one investment. You can find us at booth 327.

2. Grow Your Network at ISTE Philly’s Social Events

Learning the latest and the greatest educational methods and technology is important — but what is process without people?

Make the most of your time by attending social events and actually building connections with other educators who are tackling the same problems as you. There is no greater resource than human experience! 

You can find a list of all social sessions here. Even Kiddom is hosting an event!

More about the ISTE Kiddom Happy Hour

Tuesday, June 25 from 5:45-7:15 PM. Kiddom is hosting a formal ISTE-sponsored Happy Hour in the convention hall. There will be drinks, food, giveaways, mingling, and a Kiddom presentation! Invite only.

3. Enjoy the Local Eats and Sights of Philly!

You’re not confined to the conference halls, you know! Make the most of your trip by exploring some of the local eats and sights while you’re in town. Below we’ve rounded up Philly recommendations from some of the Kiddom folks who will be attending. Try them out and come swing by our booth afterwards to discuss!

Kiddom seamlessly connects the most critical aspects of teaching and learning on one platform.

What People Are Saying

“Kiddom is great for assessing data and then assigning appropriate work based on individual student performance. I love that it's very easy to attach standards and rubric to every assignment.”

Jackie Curts, Middle School Teacher

“Using Kiddom has made me stop and ask, ‘Am I just letting this student repeat what they already know, or am I really challenging them?’”

Ann Leghorn, High School Literacy Specialist

“I can see where my class and any student is at any moment in their educational journey. This way, I can take action to assist them to work towards mastery.”

Mr. Albrecht, High School Teacher
