Over the past couple of months, our Idea Flight team has been on the road (and in the air), travelling the country, looking for new and innovative products scheduled to hit the market this season. Along the way, we’ve also gotten the opportunity to meet some of our biggest fans and influencers! Here’s a look at where we’ve been:
Idea flight’s first stop was the Instructional Technology Strategies Conference (ITSC) in the beautiful Portland, OR. Since inception, ITSC, organized by the Organization for Educational Tech &Curriculum (OETC), has demonstrated the advances of using cutting edge technology specifically in the classroom. Educators and their colleagues, visited from all over the country to explore potential tools that will not only maximize classroom productivity but also do so in a cost effective way.
We were fortunate enough to speak at ITSC about the new and exciting features coming to Idea Flight Enterprise v2.0 and discuss in depth the results of our Beta Program. We heard first hand, what teachers were looking for in their classroom and what features they particularly wanted to see in our upcoming iterations. All awesome feedback!
A few weeks after our stop in Portland, we headed out for round 2 on the west coast for the Launch Festival in San Francisco, CA. Over 1,000 attendees, including 42 start-ups, flooded the Demo Pit and stage to debut or launch their new products (find a complete list of companies that launched, here) – some really impressive stuff! Oh yea – did we mention the President of Isreal made a stop to speak at the Fest? We had a great time demoing the new features in Idea Flight v2.0 to fellow techy friends and industry professionals alike.
Hoping to continue to get the Idea Flight word out there at these conferences so stay tuned for more coverage here on our blog or on Twitter: @ideaflight
