Hapara’s ISTE 2017 sessions not to miss

This year at ISTE we’re trying something different.

As you can imagine, a big Hapara pavilion costs more than a few wheelbarrows of money and makes us feel proud and important. But, we’re not sure that the investment is good for our customers or that it positively impacts educators and learners.

So this year, we’re skipping our big Hapara booth and sending a team of staff who will be in the Google and Microsoft partner booths. We’ll also be on the floor meeting with new and existing customers!

Click here to meet up with us at ISTE or find us in the Google and Microsoft booths at the times below:

Hapara in the Google booth:

Tuesday, June 27th from 9:30 am – 12 pm, Booth 1718

Hapara in the Microsoft booth:

Monday, June 26th at 1pm, Booth 1140

Ongoing, Booth 1700

Head over the Microsoft’s main booth for Hapara demos from their team any time you’re in the Expo Hall.

Even though we don’t have a booth this year, we still plan to make the most out of all that the conference has to offer, and we want help you get the best ISTE 2017 experience possible, too. With presentations from some of our Hapara Champions and sessions on some of our favorite topics, including personalized PD, student voice and choice, and digital adoption, below are some of the sessions we’re looking forward to the most. Be sure to add them to your schedule.
