Every June, educators from around the world convene to attend the International Society of Technology in Education’s (ISTE) annual conference. With nearly 1,200 sessions and over 600 exhibitors, here’s how you can maximize your time if you’re attending this year.

1. Network with fellow educators during and after the event.

Over 16,000 educators attend the 4-day conference to learn, network, and collaborate on ways to improve education through technology. During the conference, take advantage of meeting others around you. With a diverse group of attendees, you can gain new perspectives and see how other schools are transforming learning with ed-tech. Post-event, stay connected to your network and access year-round learning and professional development opportunities with your ISTE membership, included in your ISTE 2018 conference package.

2. Explore the Expo Hall

With technology rapidly changing and evolving, it’s hard to keep up with the most efficient and intuitive education tools. According to ISTE, the conference provides attendees with “a one-of-a-kind opportunity to gain hands-on learning experience with the latest in education technology solutions from hundreds of organizations.”

With over 600 vendor booths, the expo hall may seem impossible to navigate. Plan your expo hall exploration ahead of time by identifying the vendors by category here.

3. Attend Quality Sessions Based on Your Availability, Profession, and Learning Style

This year ISTE is offering attendees a variety of resources to personalize your learning experience at the event.

Navigate through the program with ease by filtering the session search by time and topic here. Still need some guidance? ISTE has put some sample guides together based on profession and industry. Lastly, you can select sessions based on your preferred learning style. The four learning style categories follow: listen & learn, participate & share, explore & create, and engage & connect.

 

We hope these tips help make your experience at ISTE the best one yet. Looking forward to seeing you there!
