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.
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.

VIP Expo Hall Preview, Monday, June 25, 7:30–9 a.m.
Get a private behind-the-scenes look at the ISTE 2018 Expo Hall before it opens! This VIP-only experience will include a breakfast buffet and face-to-face interaction with ISTE sponsors and other leading edtech corporations. The intimate gathering will allow you to ask questions and learn about and view demos of the products and services most important to you — all before the expo doors open to the general public!

Wrap up Breakfast & New Edtech Tools, Tuesday, June 26, 7–8:30 a.m.
Wrap up the ISTE 2018 Leadership Exchange, connect with fellow district leaders and share what you've learned over breakfast. You'll also get to hear from superintendents who've been piloting some of the latest edtech tools from ISTE.

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.
