Who run the world? Squirrels!

Thirteen members of the Squirrels team will travel a total of more than 9,400 miles by plane, cab, Uber and train to Orlando, Florida, and London to attend two of the world's premier EdTech conferences.

British Educational Training and Technology Show (Bett)

The Squirrels team is set to attend the Bett Show for the second time. We're eager to show more than 34,000 educators, administrators and EdTech professionals from over 138 countries how our products and services are used in the classroom.

This international EdTech conference is designed to create a better future by transforming education and bringing people, ideas, practices and technologies together so educators and learners can reach their full potential. Every educator can make a difference in education given the opportunity, which is what Bett aims to provide.

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.

Apps to go nuts for

SWAG and prizes

We’ve loaded up a ton of Squirrels SWAG to give away! On top of that, we have SWAG prize packs to give away to five lucky Tweeters. Stop by our booth to learn how to join #TeamSquirrels and win! (Hint… it involves a giant cardboard Squirrel).
