Conferences are a great way to learn about the latest trends in edtech, connect with like-minded educators and discover ideas you can quickly implement in your classroom. We’ve selected three upcoming conferences you should consider attending.
8-9 March, Hong Kong
A smaller conference with 120 sessions and 650 attendees, but it’s one of our favorites. 21CL brings together like-minded educators and speakers in a dynamic and intimate environment. The number of attendees means you can easily network and collaborate with enthusiastic and inspiring educators and attend smaller workshop sessions where you can discuss and explore your ideas with experienced speakers.
14-16 March, Palm Springs
CUE is the longest running edtech conference in the United States and has been a must-attend event for educational innovation for almost 40 years. With over 6000 educators attending, it is the place to find new ways to integrate technology seamlessly into your teaching. It particularly focuses on using technology in the classroom to advance student achievement.
June 23-26, Philadelphia
With over 550 companies, 1000 sessions and 16,000 educators attending, ISTE is at the heart of edtech.
Attend the conference and you’ll have the opportunity to: share with and learn from top leaders in the field; test new learning strategies with resources that can transform learning and teaching; and learn about the hottest trends in education, innovation and the future. ISTE’s standards and teacher professional development are widely adopted in schools around the world, and so this conference pulls a large crowd that tend to be focused and well versed with a lot to share.
Being in Philadelphia, ISTE 2019 is right on the doorstep of our BSD US office. So, if you are reading this and plan to attend ISTE, give us a shout we would love to show you round.
