We had so much fun in Philly last week at ISTE in our largest booth yet! We shared Makey Makey inventions, and teachers tried out GameBender and gave us some really stellar feedback.
On our Makey Makey side, we shared some demos of classroom inventions that combine invention literacy with everyday curriculum. Here's a few of our favorites:
Almost the whole team came out for ISTE to share GameBender and get teacher feedback. (We missed you Beth, Rachel. and Sean!) Bringing GameBender helped us with ideas for tweaking our new offering to be an awesome teachable coding tool. Stay tuned or sign up here for notifications on GameBender!
We had some amazing teachers working in our booth this year! The coolest thing about them is they brought their own teaching knowledge, great attitudes, AND Makey Makey inventions they'd made with students! We'd like to thank Becca Gratz, Julie Kuzma, Angela Sheenan, Ian Matty, Christopher Sweeney, Laura Roth, and Michael Fricano for sharing their awesome at ISTE! We would be nothing without teachers like ya'll using Makey Makey in the classroom.
Plus, we just have to share these amazing cookies that Becca Gratz and Julie Kuzma brought us!
These teachers are so awesome, they even went home and made new Makey Makey projects after ISTE! We can't wait for next year!
