IO Education would like to send out a big thank you to all of our presenters, partners, guests, and clients who attended our IO EXPO WEST on March 2nd and 3rd in beautiful San Diego. We couldn’t be happier with the turnout and we were proud to host this two-day event with attendees from all over the U.S. It was a terrific opportunity to listen to what is going on in many districts, share new product features, dive deeper into best practices and to thank all of our amazing customers who are working to improve student outcomes with IO Education.

Check out this 60-second IO EXPO WEST Highlights Video:

We began day one with opening remarks from our CEO Michael Williamson. This is the first chance we’ve had to really highlight the exciting combination of the EADMS organization and products with IO Education. The combination of the formative assessment capabilities with the real-time insights from IO Insights provides a compelling platform for personalized instruction in the classroom.

Michael went on to emphasized the importance of education technology working for the whole child in his presentation. When educators are able to easily understand and interpret all the important data provided to them, they can significantly improve student progress.

When it comes to showcasing new features, we couldn’t ask for a better opportunity than a room full of our favorite clients. Our guests were the first to see the newest release from IO Assessment.
We revealed our new Student/Parent Portal and Online Testing Accommodations, including the new Text to Speech functionality, with both English and Spanish options. Jeremy O’Neil (Customer Success and Implementation) was proud to announce these added features.

See below for product details that Jeremy presented to the crowd:

Both days were filled with breakout sessions and workshops for all of our guests.
