ISTE 2018 Leadership Exchange

Leaders — we've designed a learning experience just for you!

ISTE recognizes the critical role leaders must play to fully leverage technology for teaching and learning. The ISTE 2018 Leadership Exchange is a focused learning experience designed exclusively to meet the needs of superintendents looking to lead tech transformation.

The exchange is comprised of three unique experiences:

Digital Leader Forum, Sunday, June 24, 2–5 p.m.
Forum held in Hyatt Prairie Room and the reception will be held in Hyatt Regency AB
Learn firsthand from superintendents who have faced and solved the challenges you're experiencing today. This collaborative session will include thought-provoking speakers and small-group breakouts with superintendent facilitators. Facilitators will share their failures and successes, and lead discussions yielding invaluable tips and insights for developing practical approaches that use the new ISTE Standards for Education Leaders (formerly the ISTE Standards for Administrators) to meet your district's goals and objectives. You'll leave knowing how well your district is currently meeting the ISTE Essential Conditions and how leaders can get the most out of their ISTE 2018 experience. The event will conclude with a social reception.

Thank you, ISTE Leadership Cohort!

We'd like to extend a special thank you to the participants of the first-ever ISTE Leadership Cohort. This elite group of district-level education leaders volunteered their time and expertise to support ISTE in the design of our new leadership-focused content. Their contributions have been invaluable and are directly shaping the way we serve education leaders.
