LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GoGuardian, a leading education technology SaaS provider, today announced it will be making a donation to a local Philadelphia education charity at this year’s ISTE 2019 conference. Knowing that conference promotional items often end up as waste in the local community, GoGuardian, a sponsor and exhibitor at ISTE 2019, is creating a new twist on conference giveaways by giving away money instead of promotional items.
GoGuardian will be donating to Coded by Kids, a local Philadelphia charity that provides young people, of all backgrounds, with intermediate to advanced-level software development, data science and user experience design skills.
“At GoGuardian, we are committed to creating breakthrough learning experiences that inspire today’s students to be tomorrow’s leaders. There is no better way than combining the power of great teaching with the unlimited potential of the internet,” said Advait Shinde, co-founder and CEO of GoGuardian. “Investing in an educational charity instead of disposable give-aways is true to our mission of unleashing curiosity.”
“Coded By Kids is working to prepare underrepresented young people to succeed as tech leaders through project-based learning and mentorship,” said Sylvester Mobley, founder and CEO of Coded By Kids. “We appreciate technology companies that support tech education and our vision to make technology and innovation equitable for all people.”
GoGuardian is pledging $10 for every heart that attendees pin on the GoGuardian Giving Tree at the GoGuardian ISTE booth (#1752), with a minimum donation of $5000.
In addition, those who stop by the booth can interact with and learn about GoGuardian’s portfolio of tools that help K-12 schools create safe and effective digital learning environments. GoGuardian will be giving live demos of GoGuardian Admin, Teacher, Beacon, DNS and Fleet. To learn more about this year’s conference and GoGuardian, check out: http://bit.ly/315K583.
ISTE 2019 will be held June 23-26 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA.
