WE DID IT. ISTE 2019 was a huge success thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth and joined our 80s party with ClassLink and The Spazmatics. It was great to connect with many of you in person, as well as online via #NotAtISTE. For all of you out there in the GoGuardian community, here are the Best Moments of ISTE 2019 (from our perspective).

When I started going out to eat after having my daughter, I quickly learned the difference between child-friendly and child-accommodating restaurants. Child-friendly restaurants have food on their menus specifically catered toward what children like to eat, provide activities for children to enjoy while dining out, and usually have lots of booth seating for family dining. Child-accommodating restaurant will usually have less or none of these things. They’re basically saying, “You can bring your child.”

What is the whole child approach to learning?
My first teaching assignment was as a toddler teacher assistant in an early learning program I interned with when I was sixteen years old. I spent a year studying different teaching philosophies, completing coursework on behavioral guidance, learning to create a lesson plan, and assisting with instruction in the toddler program. I observed a lot, and that was probably the single most important part of my training.

In the past few months, your favorite TV shows came to a close for the season. You watched your finales and perhaps saw previews of what’s to come in the fall, and hopefully you were excited for shows to return in a few months (except for one, maybe. Winter is sadly not coming again...but fall is!). In the television industry, it’s called a “hiatus.” In education, most call it “summer break.” But it all means the same thing: we break for summer and come back strong for the next season. The truth is, while the viewers are taking summer breaks from watching the show, the production keeps running in order to bring you top content for the fall. And that’s what we’re doing too.
GoGuardian never takes a break. In fact, we’ll spend the summer ramping up to bring you new products, features, and enhancements when the school year starts again. Like any good show does for its loyal viewers, we want to give you a recap of what you’ve seen thus far and a preview of what’s to come. Here’s the Spring Finale (past updates to products) and Fall Preview (future updates to products) of the show we call “School Year”:

Every year more than 16,000 educators and admins join their personal learning network for one of the largest educational technology conferences in the world. People come to ISTE from across the nation for its convention rooms filled to the brim with swag, break-out sessions, and ISTE buddies. As usual, GoGuardian will be there, and we are so excited to share with you what is going on in our booth this year! To begin the ISTE countdown, we’re having a countdown of our own: what are people are most excited for on the ISTE floor and in Philadelphia?
