Acing ISTE

by Megan -

All papers are in, tests are graded, report cards have gone home and yearbooks have been signed. That’s right folks, the end of another school year. You know what that means don’t you? Now it’s the teachers’ turns to get out and play! That’s exactly what they did at last week’s International Society for Technology in Education conference (that’s a mouthful – we prefer “ISTE”), which was held in San Antonio, Texas from June 23-26. The hardworking teachers got to get their hands on some of the latest technology available for educators, including iStopMotion for iPad!

As major proponents for using technology in education, Boinx was there to showcase our stop motion animation app, as well as to speak with educators about how they can incorporate these technologies into their curricula. We had the awesome opportunity to co-exhibit with our friends from Freshi Media (that’s Freshi like Fresh-Eye!). At Freshi Media, their goal is to introduce digital filmmaking, animation and video game design and development to children, K-12. They’ve got an amazing program, and we strongly encourage you all to check them out. Freshi even offers stop motion animation courses, using none other than iStopMotion!

The conference was quite the success, and we had a wonderful time chatting with so many enthusiastic educators who are passionate about keeping their classrooms ahead of the curve when it comes to technology. We even had the opportunity to speak with some teachers who are already using iStopMotion for Mac or iPad in the classroom, and it was so rewarding to hear their stories. If you were at ISTE, we hope you had as good a time as we did. If you weren’t, no worries!
