Thank you, #FETC

#Teamsquirrels had an amazing experience at FETC 2015. Not only did we get to escape the Ohio snowstorms and take refuge in the Orlando sun, we spent the week talking with educators, tech coordinators and administrators from schools across the country. 

We received an incredible response to our 2.0 updates of both AirParrot and Reflector (coming soon!), and we’re anxious to build on all of the knowledge and feedback we picked up throughout the week. Thank you to FETC and all who attended for making this conference a huge success!

Check out some pictures from the event.

Thanks #NYSCATE14!

Our second year at NYSCATE was a success! We met some awesome exhibitors like our new friends at Ruckus Wireless, and we talked to a lot of excited educators, tech specialists and administrators representing schools from all over New York. 

The exhibit was a blast, but the dueling pianos event was our favorite part of the conference! Evan Burgess and Tommy Sklut from Midwest Dueling Pianos played a variety of our favorite songs and were extremely entertaining.

We appreciate the time and enthusiasm from all who attended. Check out some pictures from the conference!
