The InkSmith team is excited to head down to New Orleans, Louisiana next week for the annual ISETLive Conference, hosted by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). ISTE is a nonprofit organization that works with the global education community to accelerate the use of technology to solve tough problems and inspire innovation.
InkSmith will join hardware technology partner micro:bit, alongside two other micro:bit accessory partners at the conference from June 26 - 29. InkSmith is a distribution partner for the BBC micro:bit, a pocket-sized computer that introduces students to coding. InkSmith has developed several accessory robotic kits around the micro:bit while also providing educator professional training and student workshops.
At the conference, InkSmith will have a booth with a series of displays including 3D printing, and micro:bit accessories like the Climate Action Kit and k8 Robotics kit. InkSmith will also be hosting several onsite workshops in the micro:bit classroom space located within the micro:bit booth.

For more than four decades, the ISTE conference has been recognized as one of the world’s most influential education events. It’s where educators and education leaders gather to engage in hands-on learning, share best practices and hear from the brightest minds from the world of education and beyond.
The annual event attracts over 16,000 attendees and industry representatives, including teachers, tech coordinators and directors, library media specialists, education leaders, tech providers and researchers from around the world. Attendees enjoy over two dozen featured voices on our mainstage, thousands of sessions in a variety of formats and a massive expo hall.
Due to the global pandemic, the ISTE conference went fully virtual in 2020 and 2021, using a custom-built platform that allowed real-time collaboration with presenters and attendees, gamification features designed to deepen learning and engagement, and an archive of more than 1,000 learning experiences that attendees could return to for six months.
This year, ISTELive 22 will be a hybrid event featuring powerful voices and offering a treasure trove of content and resources for attendees in New Orleans and those attending virtually around the world.
