We're kicking off our summer with the ISTE Conference 2018, which will take place June 24-27 in Chicago. We're looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones -- we hope you'll be there too!
This education technology conference 'is the place where educator-tested strategies come together with proven resources for transforming learning and teaching. It’s also the place to get connected to the brightest minds in edtech, then network with them all year long.'
Conference highlights include:
Speakers include David Eagleman, neuroscientist and author of The Brain: The Story of You; Nadia Lopez, educational leader and school founder; Andy Weir, author of The Martian and Artemis and STEM advocate; Katie Martin, former director of the Buck Institute for Education and new teacher induction researcher; and Michael Cohen, a.k.a the 'Tech Rabbi', advocate for creative, global learning.
