ISTE 2016 was by far the best experience we've had at any conference (and we've been to more than a few). We connected with so many amazing teachers and administrators. We’re excited to work with everyone who was inspired by our message and #EscapeTheBus sessions! It was awesome to see so many educators collaborating as they tried to #EscapeTheBus. It was as if the bus illuminated with brightly flashing lightbulbs as each session came to a close. Here's an album of all the great moments we captured at the conference. Enjoy, and feel free to share this with your colleagues on Twitter!
Meet our amazing tour operators and #EscapeTheBus facilitators, Nick and Kris. They travel the country year-round, and challenge students, teachers, and administrators to change their approach to teaching and learning.
Our #EscapeTheBus experience is similar to the escape rooms that have become a very popular team building activity. We put that concept on wheels, and bring it to your school's doorstep, where we provide a fun and engaging experience that students and teachers can relate to the classroom.
In a nutshell, we role model gamification and the new paradigm of project based learning, advanced questioning, and having fun while doing it! ;)
Our #EscapeTheBus was in the expo hall and running 30 minute sessions throughout the day. 396 people went through the game, and 32% of the groups solved the puzzle within the time limit. The fastest time was 26 minutes and 4 seconds!
Our animated hosts, Tim, Blake, and Josh brought the hype to ISTE with some dance and karaoke outside the bus!
