The Kami Team have set down their suitcases from yet another edtech conference extravaganza. This time the setting was the wintery Austin, Texas and the fabulous TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association) Expo.
The team enjoyed three jam-packed days of workshops, demos, and conversations with educators across the school spectrum.
So how did we get on?
Kami Team highlights
We are always impressed at the passion of educators we meet at conferences, but TCEA was special in the sheer variety of roles and responsibilities represented. We had brilliant conversations with everyone, from librarians and classroom teachers to tech directors and IT staff. It was fantastic to get such a broad understanding of function demands across the education sector, and of course, introduce so many new faces to the potential of Kami in their schools.
Texas is also the home of many Kami Heroes and we were super lucky to have so many of them drop by to say hi and meet the team. You guys are awesome!
Special mention also has to go to the food on offer in the beautiful city of Austin. Whether it was Tex Mex, BBQ or simply some good old fashioned fried chicken – we enjoyed every single meal immensely and we definitely returned to NZ a little heavier than we left!
