New Ideas call for proposals postponed

As we navigate the impact of COVID-19 on our communities and across the field, we’ve decided to postpone the New Ideas call for proposals. Supporting educators and our communities is our highest priority right now. To help you keep the learning going, ISTE and a coalition of education organizations have curated tools, strategies, tips and best practices for teaching online at learningkeepsgoing.org.

Suggest a mainstage presenter

Know of a visionary you’d like to see at a future ISTE conference? We’re looking for mainstage presenters who inspire us, amaze us and ignite our passion for learning.

Our mainstage presenters are known as individuals from any field, including education, who can bring fresh perspectives to our audience in new and exciting ways.

Catch our attention by:

  • Thinking outside the box. The ISTE Conference & Expo isn’t your typical education conference.
  • Keeping it simple. Make your case briefly, concisely and with gusto.
  • Sharing examples. Link to videos and articles about your suggested speaker.
  • Offering diverse viewpoints. Tell us how your suggestion inspires, informs and broadens the perspective and practice of all educators.

Don’t be shy — if you’ve got a burning message to share, feel free to recommend yourself!
