Present at ISTE21

ISTE helps educators around the world use technology to solve tough problems in education. We seek proposals from educators at every career stage, from all backgrounds and all parts of the world, and love to see student participation in presentations! We also welcome exhibitor proposals that demonstrate noncommercial uses of technology to transform education.

The call for proposals is now closed. If you submitted a proposal, we will send an email notification in late January when decisions have been posted on presenter menus.

Registration opens in January

Registration for ISTE21 will open in January. Stay connected to receive updates on conference news.
