ISTE 2016

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! 

We had two teams #EscapeTheBus with only a second to spare! You could hear the bus shake and rumble as the team inside finally broke the code.

Our animated hosts, Tim, Blake, and Josh brought the hype to ISTE with some dance and karaoke outside the bus!

We gave away an iPad Pro, Bloxels, and an Escape the Bus Tour Stop, along with a few awesome #EscapeTheBus shirts. Congratulations to our raffle winners!

p.s. We can't wait to see you in Houston, Angela!
