This week in Orlando, Florida, thousands of passionate, creative, and highly engaged educational professionals from around the world will gather for the 38th annual Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC) to network, share ideas, and explore new technology. There will be more than 600 expert-led learning opportunities, as well as an enormous Expo Hall that will feature more than 400 exhibiting companies presenting solutions in 3D printing, robotics, assessment, software, and so much more.
With such a massive conference floor filled with teachers, directors, administrators, IT professionals and other educators, it can be overwhelming deciding where to even begin.
Here’s a short list of some of the exhibitors that will be at FETC 2018 that have really stood out to us here at Telliant Systems:
Orange Neurosciences – Orange Neurosciences, an exciting Canadian startup, is an AI based technology company developing a revolutionary cognitive platform for people with learning differences and dyslexia. ReadON is an all-in-one remediation that is hoping to reduce or eliminate the need for supplemental accommodation in schools and in the workplace. Orange Neurosciences was this year’s winner of the Canadian EdTech Summit Startup Challenge, and is joining FETC this year as part of their prize winnings!
Doceri by SP Controls, Inc. – SP Controls, based in San Francisco, has been revolutionizing audiovisual technology for classrooms and conference rooms since 1997 with easy-to-use, inexpensive AV control products. In 2011, after Apple introduced the iPad, SP Controls leapt on this game-changing new technology and created Doceri, a suite of products that allows teachers to control a computer’s desktop, to control audiovisual technology, and to annotate any presentation in real time using the iPad. Doceri is an intuitive interface that could eventually replace interactive whiteboards and expensive AV touch panels.
GoGuardian – GoGuardian, a software company based in Los Angeles, provides Google Chromebook management solutions that help schools protect students online and easily manage their technology. They also provide tools for teachers to help them connect with their students, safely guide them through online content, and manage technology in the classroom.
Nearpod – Nearpod, located in Aventura, Florida, is an award-winning educational technology company that empowers teachers to create engaging and inspiring learning experiences for students by combining access to digital lessons, interactive features (like Virtual Field Trips and 3D objects initiatives) and real-time assessments. Nearpod has become a leader—and teacher favorite—in teaching and learning.
Image API, Inc. – Based in Tallahassee, Florida, Image API specializes in highly configurable, scalable and integrated process management solutions that improve efficiency and lower costs. They deliver private cloud, SaaS-based digital content management solutions that support their clients’ efforts to go paperless, with a primary focus on serving the public sector, including state and local government agencies and education institutions.

CodeREADr – The CodeREADr SaaS platform, developed in Massachusetts, is a cloud-based auto-ID and data capture (AIDC) solution which enables mobile apps to read, track and authenticate data-embedded barcodes and NFC objects anywhere, at any time. The app works with smartphones, tablets, laptops and some rugged barcode readers. Data embedded objects may include tickets, coupons, inventory and virtually any asset as well membership, corporate, student, patient and other IDs, whether presented in printed form or on a mobile phone.
Edthena – Another San Francisco based company, Edthena is a video coaching platform focused on teacher professional learning. Teachers record and upload videos from any device, and people on the other end provide timestamped feedback.
