Sharing the experience after ISTE Live 2022
Our experts participated in ISTELive 22, which was organized on 26-29 June 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Although it was a hybrid event this year, Learnetic specialists were there in person, and shared digital publishing experiences with American partners and clients.
Educational publishing market in the US.
The US market differs from the European’s in terms of structure. Rather than adapting the core curriculum to the entire country, it is prepared for a specific state/district. This has an impact on the potential customers’ investment – the mapping of content products is adapted to the state’s curriculum. However, it’s a very interesting market for companies like ours – this diversity gives us more chances for fruitful discussions with local publishers – says Łukasz Kwiatkowski, Regional Operations Manager at Learnetic.
Participants of ISTE Live 2022
This year there were relatively many exhibitors – comparable to the BETT show in London or GESS in Dubai. The vast majority of suppliers were hardware in the broad sense – devices, school equipment, furniture and security. Among the exhibitors, there was a strong representation of new EdTech companies and startups that offer educational applications and systems for managing access/security at school. – says Rafał Romejko, Head of International Operations at Learnetic.
The fair also featured organizations offering applications and services for learning Coding, robotics and STEM.
Technologies vs. traditional learning
This year’s exhibitors showed such a wide spectrum of technological solutions for education that basically everyone could find something for themselves – a student, teacher and educational publisher.
What’s more important, modern educational solutions are accessible to everyone, even users without deep IT knowledge. The ease of use of technologies causes one thing – the willingness to take advantage of it, especially when both final users are eager to implement more and more digital solutions into their daily learning mode.
Next edition of ISTE Live 2023
The organizers have already announced the next edition of ISTE Live 2023, which will take place on June 25-28, 2023 in Philadelphia. We want to thank all visitors, our guests, and specialists from the education community for sharing their knowledge and digital insights from the American market. We are ready for the next challenges. See you next year!
