Bringing together all of ISE’s Education Technology

education-technology_lowISE 2017 will see the addition of a new category to the Integrated Systems Europe show format. Education Technologies have been an important part of ISE for some time, which is why the show’s organisers took the decision to consolidate the Education Technology elements of the show and strengthen the edtech offer in 2017 and beyond. This move comes at a time when education is embracing technology more than ever.

Though it’s widely acknowledged it is people who drive innovative thinking and techniques in learning environments, progress and development of these new ways of thinking is certainly facilitated by the AV technologies available to the end user. In recent years, we’ve seen the rise of learning techniques like flipped learning, peer-to-peer, collaborative, blended learning and lecture capture.

Technology designers and providers recognise the rising importance that technology has in education and are reacting with products and solutions. ISE has seen some big companies and long-term ISE exhibitors that have either expanded their business or have re-aligned their offer to reach the education market. The show has also seen some new and exciting edtech companies appear on the horizon. This adds up to a general trend that education-technology’s prominence at ISE is growing, which is why there will be a dedicated education hall in 2017.

ISE has always had solutions and products for education, with educational buying groups attending the show. The new hall – Hall 13 – will consolidate these things and help them to grow further, while simultaneously helping attendees who are focused on this sector to embark on a more coherent ISE journey.

ISE understands that the implementation of edtech is most effective when it is supported by training and education. That applies right across the field of AV and systems integration, which is why professional development is such a prominent part of the show. Training and development sessions at ISE 2017 will cover important issues for education buyers.

ISE 2017 will be more important than ever for those interested in Education Technology.
