For nearly four decades, the ISTE annual conference has brought together a passionate community of teachers, education leaders, tech providers and researchers from around the world. Rooted in “learning first, technology second,” the ISTE Conference has become the premiere event for sharing innovative practices that transform and improve learning for all students.  

Earlier this year, ISTE decided to reschedule its annual conference from the end of June to November in light of COVID-19 pandemic. However, with the continued global health crisis and in consultation with public health officials, the organization decided to transition ISTE20 to a fully virtual experience. ISTE20 will be held entirely virtually from Nov. 29 through Dec. 5, 2020.  

"Our team has been working diligently to create a unique, engaging virtual experience that captures the energy and enthusiasm emblematic of our community. What we have planned will be anything but your typical online conference,” said Richard Culatta, CEO of ISTE. “Participants can expect an immersive experience filled with educator-led learning opportunities on topics like creating equity and community in blended and online environments, teaching creative project-based learning, and offering meaningful feedback and assessment in remote settings. As educators around the world grapple with the unique challenges of teaching amidst a pandemic, the conversations taking place at ISTE have never been more pressing. ”
