🎧 Listen to an audio version of this post:
Were you at ISTELive 23 this year, or did you follow along with #NotAtISTE? This year’s event in Philadelphia was one of our favorites! We were energized to see Hāpara community members in person and thrilled to make new friends, too. Thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth to say hello. We appreciated every conversation about digital citizenship, ethical screen monitoring, powerful web filtering, effective online teaching and more. Will we see you next year at ISTELive 24 in Denver? In the meantime, check out our ISTELive 23 takeaways.
ISTE was inspiring
This year’s theme was “Discover your next idea, collaboration, inspiration, favorite tech tool and adventure.” Here are some ISTE quotes that inspired us.
Digital citizenship is your superpower
Educators rocked our “Digital citizenship is my superpower” shirts. We also loved hearing how community members use Hāpara to boost digital citizenship skills throughout their districts and schools. How do you use Hāpara Highlights, Filter or Workspace to make digital citizenship part of everyday learning?
Hāpara admins and educators are the absolute best
This year we couldn’t stop smiling from seeing our community members in person. In fact, some traveled hundreds of miles to Philadelphia! A huge thank you to those who connected with us or spoke to other educators about using Hāpara to power awesome learning.

Hipi was found in record time this year at ISTE
Hipi lost several members of their flock this year, but the missing sheepicorns were found in record time across the expo hall. We were impressed by this year’s ISTE super sleuths! They’ve already shared Hipi’s travel experiences across Philly and the United States. We can’t wait to follow along with more Hipi adventures as the school year starts.
Teamwork makes the dream work
We love our team, and we truly had an ISTE to remember. We look forward to continuing the conversations and helping you create meaningful digital learning experiences.
