« ISTE helps educators around the world use technology to solve tough problems in education.

We also welcome exhibitor proposals that demonstrate noncommercial uses of technology to transform education.

On its Web page, International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) explains what is a good proposal for its annual conference, gives acceptance rates according to types of submissions (e.g. creation lab and poster sessions have better rates than classical lecture or panel sessions, etc.).

Presenters from all around the world and from all levels are welcome to propose. If your submission is approved, you will need to register to the conference, but will have access to the lowest rate available. ISTE conference will be taking place in Anaheim CA (USA), at the Anaheim Convention Center, on June 28 – July 1, 2020.

ISTE gives tips for a successful submission

A complete submission guide is offered by ISTE and it is filled with tips and advice on writing a successful proposal. These are among our favourites:

Be a guru. Don’t just speak; impart tech and pedagogical knowledge like the expert you are!

Inspire. Empower educators and students to lead.

Engage. Encourage participation and be so enthralling your audience will forget to multitask.

Preach. Talk about the importance of access for all learners.

Be inclusive. Choose copresenters who represent diverse backgrounds, perspectives and experiences.

Will you give your expertise a try on this huge edtech conference? You could even bring K-12 students along!
