What you need to know for #CUE18

Stephanie CarmichaelMarch 9, 2018

We are super excited for Spring CUE 2018 in Palm Springs, California! As we pack our bags and set sail on this awesome adventure, we thought we’d share some things to help you get ready, too.

Bring your appetite!

Wondering where you’re going to eat during CUE? Looking to host a meetup over some tasty treats? This crowdsourced food guide created by Lisa Nowakowski (@NowaTechie) has got you covered.

Have you been to Palm Springs before and know a good place to eat? Add it to this map. That’s the beauty of crowdsourcing. Classcraft founder and CEO Shawn Young (@_shawnyoung_), loves ramen, so we added Kaikou Ramen Poke & Sushi to the map! Join us for a nice bowl of ramen by reaching out to us at @classcraftgame.

Rest your vocal chords. You’ll need them!

At ISTE last year, we helped sponsor the EdTech Karaoke event, and oh boy, did we have fun! It’s the kind of event that people talk about long after the conference is over. We met up with one the karaoke standouts from last summer at OETC in Oregon last month, and she couldn’t stop saying how much fun she had.

The Spring 2018 edition of CUE Karaoke will take place on March 16 from 8:00 to 10:00 PM at the Catalina Renaissance Hotel. Who’s ready to get #CUE18afterdark trending!?

Appropriate footwear is key!

Don’t let sore feet bring you down, especially if you plan on going on the #CUEhike. Even if you’re not suited to early morning hikes, with nearly 500 sessions and the always packed exhibit hall, you might want to pack more that just flip flops!

When you do finally make it to the exhibit hall, come visit us at Booth #132.
