Last week was the 2024 Pennsylvania Educational Technology Expo & Conference (PETE&C) in Hershey, PA. PETE&C delivers 200+ educational sessions via multiple media sources − keynotes, breakout sessions, immersive experiences, playgrounds, poster sessions, networking events, and more − for all LEA employees across the state. Attendees experience impactful professional development and increase their knowledge and awareness of new concepts and resources. This coupled with the interaction with the exhibitors/sponsors ties together both the information and tools to take back to their schools, districts, and LEAs.
I, along with some other members of my Parmetech team, had the pleasure of exhibiting our offerings for K-12 education during the expo portion of the conference on Monday February 5th and Tuesday February 6th. It was so much fun getting to showcase our latest educational technology (EdTech) and classroom technology solutions for schools from all over the state of Pennsylvania. Let’s get into a little recap of my time at PETE&C 2024!
Parmetech at PETE&C 2024
This was Parmetech’s second year exhibiting at PETE&C and we had a blast! It’s always a great time getting some face time with our customers and prospective schools we’re talking to about their edtech and classroom technology needs.
The highlight of our booth this year was definitely our ViewSonic Google EDLA-certified interactive whiteboard! This is an exciting new product launch from ViewSonic, and long awaited by many schools that use the Google Workspace exclusively.
Some of the top features of the IFP52 ED Google EDLA interactive display series from ViewSonic are:
Native Google Play Support – Access hundreds of apps such as Google Drive, Sheets, Slides, Docs, Project Management, etc. through the Google Play Store with a single sign-on.
Advanced Security – Google Play Protect keeps your apps safe and your data private. With Google EDLA (Enterprise Device License Agreement), your organization is protected with a suite of device management and monitoring tools provided by Google Workspace.
Hassle-Free Maintenance – Automatic Google updates ensure worry-free no-hassle maintenance.
Integrated myViewBoard Software – The ViewSonic myViewBoard® digital whiteboarding software suite helps you get the most out of your interactive display. It allows you to give real-time quizzes to both in-class students and remote learners; it lets students write, highlight text and share content; it delivers thousands more ways to make your lessons more engaging.
We were able to give some really engaging live demos to attendees and also let them get their hands on the panel and play around with its new features. We also received fantastic feedback from some customers that stopped by our booth on how much they love their ViewSonic interactive displays and working with the Parmetech team!
Theresa from Octorara Area School District jumped on our social media to let the world know – “We have four of these (ViewSonic) boards and they are awesome! Come see them! Parmetech will take care of you and you will be super, super happy!”
All in all, it was a great time had by all and we’re looking forward to returning to Hershey next year for PETE&C 2025!
