Must the EdTech Trade Shows Go On?

Anyone else miss crowded trade show floors, hotel lobby bars, and last-minute coffee meetups? In this episode of EdTech Today, edTech industry event veteran Frank Catalano dives into “The List”—his ever-changing tally of in-person education events that suddenly disappeared one year ago this month—and divines when we may once again be brushing elbows, instead of trading Zoom waves, with colleagues.

“The tools and techniques have gotten a lot better for online conferences. I give ISTE credit for this. They built their own platform when they were forced to go virtual. They’re going that way again this year, and they realized that this can’t just be all about Zoom.” – Frank Catalano
