ISTE 2017: supporting ISTE Standards and being a good digital citizen
14th June 2017
This time last year, we touched down in a 16 foot tall rocket ship booth in Denver, Colorado to showcase our solutions at ISTE. We served ‘astronaut’ ice-cream, ran an astronaut selfie competition, and officially ‘launched’ our updated online safety keyword libraries. So with ISTE 2017 fast approaching, we thought there was no better time than now to give you a sneak peek at what’s in store this year, show how we support teachers and administrators to meet ISTE Standards, and teach students about ‘being a good digital citizen’.
how we support ISTE Standards
The ISTE Standards, also known as the National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) are the standards outlined for the use of technology and technology integration in teaching and learning. We’ve put together this handy document, which explores how our flagship solution, Impero Education Pro, supports a number of the ISTE standards for teachers and administrators.

a special guest on our booth
We’re super excited to be welcoming founder and CEO of the Digital Citizenship Institute, Marialice B.F.X Curran – AND her son – on our booth this year. Marialice, along with her son, will be delivering a free, insightful presentation on digital citizenship. Be sure to stop by booth 1752 to watch the presentation and ask any questions you have about being a good digital citizen.

some exciting new developments
Of course, we’ll be showcasing the latest developments at Impero, including Clever SIS integration and enhanced Chromebook functionality. Impero Education Pro works with Clever to integrate various SIS systems and enable automatic group creation, so teachers have quick and easy visibility of all their scheduled classes. Our enhanced Chromebook compatibility provides real-time monitoring of all Chromebook screens and open tabs; an intuitive Google device IDs feature enables users to view Chromebooks alongside other devices within the same view.
