Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

What we seek with giving a talk at ISTE is to give to know our app since we believe that it has a lot of potential and that it is capable of helping students with the admissions processes for the university, also that it is a viable tool for universities to make themselves know to students and for schools to help students by showing this app so that they see the admissions process from another perspective.

Outline

We would talk about the app from a student perspective and we would project the app so that they see it and work with it (this would take approximately 20 - 30 minutes) we would talk about what it is all that can be done, we would talk about the app from a perspective of a teacher to teach the potential it has for schools and how it can be used to help students (this would take approximately 10-20 minutes) we would include the experience of the network of schools that we assist with the app, as well it would talk a bit about the history of why the app emerged that in the midst of a pandemic a tool was created to help students (this would take approximately 10 minutes).
