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 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. ISTELive 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!
