My next adventures at ISTE 2014 included the following:
Met with Splash Math developers, Joy Deep Nath and company. So nice to finally meet the duo behind the comprehensive k-5 award winning math apps. They were asking where they should be going level wise in the near future and wanted to know what void TWA saw in the market. Read our two reviews about the Splash Math - Splash Math Grades 1 to 5 – iPad app Syncs with Web & Makes Learning Math Fun, Splash Math Apps, Grades K – 5, by StudyPad
Coincidently (on purpose) ran into Matthew McConnell from Famigo. Teachers With Apps and Famigo have been sharing content for quite some time now; it is always so great to meet collaborators face to face.
Attended a great mini presentation from Demibooks, by Rafiq Ahmed. Can't wait to start reviewing their new stellar/brilliant composer app... as well as their other titles!
The presentation, Wearable Tech featuring Google Glass, by Steve Dembo and Adam Bellow was enlightening to say the least. It seems we are about to enter into the Wild West of Google Glass and other products that could really change our daily lives. Amazing stuff!
Visited Gripcase and definitely plan on doing a product review soon. Missed dinner with this company but Jackie Bryla, one of TWA's reviewers and a huge fan of their product, made it. She will be joining forces with this wonderful company in promoting their product. Product review from Jackie coming soon...
The 20 to Watch reunion with Anne Flynn, from CoSN and TechSmith, was a smash success. It was wonderful to reunite with friends and make new ones too. Highlights from the evening:
~ Todd Nesloney is moving districts to become a principal.
~ Brad Waid, from Two Guys and Some iPads, has left his 4th grade classroom, as has his partner Drew Minock. They have signed on with the augmented reality company, Daqri.
~ Kari Stubbs, from BrainPOP, made a quick appearance and two executives from VIF International education.
~VIF International Education kept the night going with stimulating conversation about where the educational landscape is going and what we can expect in the future. Networking at its best.
This morning, I am off to the last of the ISTE 2014 conference. Will report back later...
