There's a whole new way to engage at this year's SETDA Emerging Technologies Leadership Forum. We'll be hosting SETDA LeadOn! MVP game for attendees to Lead, Innovate and Learn with hands-on activities ranging from networking to reflection, sharing to workshop attendance.


SETDA (State Educational Technology Directors Association) ETLF 'provides a venue for SETDA’s state members and the private sector to engage in meaningful dialogue about topics of importance in digital learning across the nation. Companies showcase their innovative products and services while SETDA members, representing the state departments of education, highlight their major state initiatives and priorities.'

Get ahead of the game (literally) with the pre-conference activities below, and find out more about the activities you can complete during the conference. Best to hurry - there are already educators from across the country signed up and gearing up to get on the leaderboard and win prizes, including:

  • Three Amazon gift cards.
  • A 3-6 month trial of Alludo for your state organization, choice of district or school pilot.
  • LeadOn! ribbons and stickers will be available starting at registration Friday and through Sunday at the event. Come by registration or the Alludo table & don’t miss the drawings on Sunday!
