It was a true privilege to share the floor with more than 15,000 K-12 teachers, school IT administrators, and technical coordinators at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) recently, from June 26–June 30, 2010. The conference spanned a wide variety of relevant and innovative technologies for the classroom, including Microsoft Mouse Mischief!

Mouse Mischief was featured in interactive demos and hands-on learning classroom activities. The initial response to the technology was overwhelmingly positive. Many of the participants and visitors were excited to learn about this affordable technology that can increase engagement and interactivity in the classroom by using familiar technology (PowerPoint 2010 or PowerPoint 2007) and familiar hardware (computer mice). While visiting the booth, many teachers and administrators mentioned how eager they were to start using Mouse Mischief in their classrooms and to deploy it in their districts.

We were very happy to give away branded Mouse Mischief hubs, USB sticks, and “free tools for teachers in the classroom” CDsa collection of resources from Microsoft to help engage students. We sincerely thank everyone who visited the Microsoft booth. Special thanks to our partner, ePals, for hosting a daily raffle, and congratulations to Mouse Mischief Starter Kit winners. We were delighted to see Mouse Mischief being featured by a group of former teachers from Teach us Technology. In their own words, “We love Mouse Mischief …it is so easy to use!”

If you missed us at the conference, join our Mouse Mischief community to stay current with Mouse Mischief.
