    Oftentimes an education technology conference seems to have the sound but not the substance of change for classrooms. This was not the case at ISTE 2014.

    We were first time exhibitors at ISTE and we just wanted to say thank you to everyone for stopping by our booth, learning about our solution, and giving us invaluable feedback! We feel that we understand so much more about how teachers view assessments—and how they’d like to assign, track, and grade homework.   Teachers were happy to know they don’t always have to craft [...]

    Not every quote you’ll read about education is full of praise. Some of the most successful, imaginative, and influential people in the world have openly shared their unflattering opinions on institutions, pedagogies, and classroom experience.  Nevertheless, I think most people understand the intrinsic value of education—seeing that insights offered by critics are (most times) contextualized by political or personal experience.  Why Education Matters The answer to [...]
