Written by Malvina Dimitri (rising Grade 6) about her experience presenting alongside Lower School Media Specialist Nancy Penchev at the ISTE Conference in June.

This summer I had the chance to go to the ISTE Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was a lot of fun. ISTE stands for International Society for Technology in education. Mrs. Penchev and I got many visitors at our booth where we presented the “Girls Building STEAM Program.” The Girls building STEAM program is a program where girls can experience the fun of science using many household items. Most of them were teachers and they were very interested in what we had to say. Others were just viewers of the conference. 

At the conference itself, I was able to see many familiar names.  Some of the programs which we use at Scheck Hillel were there. For example, Dash and Dot, IXL, BrainPop (with Moby), AR Reader, Google and many more.  There were many more beneficial programs but this one stood out because of its name, and that program was Kahoot! Kahoot is an online program that is a group activity. Every student has to have an electronic device (phone, laptop, etc.) and connect it to the game that the teacher is conducting. There are a series of questions. The student who earns the most points, wins.

We also saw many new things that would benefit Scheck Hillel. For example, the LEGO company makes robots out of Legos! This is beneficial because it teaches students to think hard and work together. No matter what shape or size, making these robots will help the students think harder and be creative.

We also visited a booth with a program called Essay Writer. This is a program where you type in your essay topic and it gives you ideas on what to write and how to write it. This program is great because if the students do not know what to write, they can go on the app and it gives the student an idea on what to write about.

Another booth had a program called Click Team. This is a program to build our own video games for education or just for fun! This program is beneficial because the teachers can make a video game to teach the students about a specific subject. Also, the students can make video games about one subject and form groups to play each other’s games.

There was also a booth with a website called Flocabulary. This is a website that has songs about different subjects. For example, vocabulary, this website has vocabulary from kindergarten all the way until SAT prep. There are also subjects such as language arts, science, social studies, life skills, and math.

There were many more booths at the conference but these stood out because they were beneficial to the school. There is another conference in Denver next year, I’ll see you there!
