We had an amazing time at the ISTE conference in Denver this year! From previewing new features to epic educator rap battles and mini PD sessions on writing academic rhymes, there was tons to see and enjoy at Booth 920. Thanks to everyone who helped make it awesome.

However you enjoyed ISTE, we’ve compiled some of our favorite videos, photos and tweets from the conference to share so you can catch up on all the Flocab happenings. Read on!
