ISTE Live 2023

Wacom at the 2023 International Society for Technology in Education Conference

May 30, 2023

Wacom is proud to attend ISTE Live 2023

The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference is the world’s most comprehensive Education Technology event. Wacom is thrilled to be participating at ISTE this year in the exhibit hall. With approximately 12,000 attendees, ISTE is the place to be a learner, be inspired, and connect with other educators. This year’s conference will be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from June 25-28. “Discover your next … idea, collaboration, inspiration…,” is the theme for the conference. The Wacom team is excited to discover our next partnership, discuss innovative ideas, and connect with educator friends.

The ISTE conference serves as a hub for educators and professionals to explore the latest trends, tools, and pedagogy in educational technology. Each day is filled with a variety of session types, in person and virtual options, all facilitated by engaging educators. The Wacom team has highlighted a few sessions that we are looking forward to attending:

Building Efficacy to Create an ULTRA Accessible Classroom

Utilizing and Leveraging Technology to Reinvent Accessibility (ULTRA) is an education research grant aimed at building teacher and student efficacy in STEM through professional learning, using Microsoft 365 accessibility tools and Minecraft: Education Edition. Learn how the ULTRA team provided professional learning and how ULTRA is revolutionizing efficacy in STEM.

Presenters: Allison McGrath, Jason Pearce, and Kelley Predieri from Duval County Public Schools

10 Must-Try Formative Assessment Strategies: Check for Understanding With Digital Tools

Presenter: Dr. Monica Burns

Kickstart Creativity: Fostering a Schoolwide Culture of Creativity

How do you scale and foster creative culture within your school? In this interactive session, we will play and imagine together while we explore opportunities designed to spark inspiration with students and staff. Come prepared to move, have fun and think outside the box!

Presenters: Martha Bongiorno, Meggan Ford, and Isabella Hembree from Fulton County Schools

The Versatile World of Sketchnotes

Learn to ditch that copier by incorporating sketchnotes. Learn ideas, strategies and tools to use sketchnotes to empower students to take ownership of learning, assess learning, and take notes visually. Discover ways, both with and without tech, to create sketchnotes, curate student sketchnotes, and bring student learning to an authentic audience.

Presenter: Adam Juarez

In addition to these great sessions, we will be visiting some of our partners in the exhibit hall as well. Our friends over at Kami are always having a great time sharing the new tools and features for annotation, accessibility, and integration. You can probably spot one of the trainers on the Kami team using a Wacom tablet to be mobile while presenting! We are super excited to be in the Pear Deck booth to chat about how Pear Deck and Wacom are better together. With the pen precision of our products and the drawing features of Pear Deck, we are the perfect “pear!” Our friends over at the Foxit booth have included us in their scavenger hunt for prizes – so check out what they are doing and join in on the fun.

Wacom tablets in classroom with K-12 teacher

As you navigate the enormous exhibit hall, we invite you to head over to Booth #2057, where you can get hands-on exploring our various pen tablets. You can give them a test drive with your favorite digital tools like Magma, Kami, and Pear Deck. The Wacom team will be eager to answer your questions and help you discover the endless possibilities that Wacom’s technology brings to your school or classroom. Check out how you can be teaching untethered in the classroom with the Intuos wireless tablet, or explore our pen displays to really get your students’ creativity flowing.

The ISTE conference is an unparalleled gathering of educators, technology enthusiasts, and innovators who are passionate about harnessing the power of technology in education. We hope that if you are attending, you can find time in your schedule to stop in and chat. Whether you are attending or not, you can follow along with the Wacom team at ISTE on our socials @wacomedu.
