Few professional learning experiences surpass the engagement and excitement of exploring edtech with your peers. Traveling to a new city, finally meeting up with your virtual peeps in person and immersing yourself in the collaborative energy of ISTE19 combine to create a powerful learning environment where you can’t help but soak up new knowledge about the latest tips, tools and ideas.
But what if you're not able to make it to Philadelphia, June 23-26? No worries. You can still be a part of the learning.
Here are three free ways to participate in the conference without traveling:
1. Follow #iste19, #passthescopeedu and #notatiste on Twitter and @ISTEconnect on Instagram.
You can learn a lot from the conference just by following the #ISTE19 hashtag and the @iste handle, whether you’re onsite or sitting in your living room. Throughout the conference, our members will share livestreams, resources, recaps and ideas on social media. You can even join live backchannel chats for select sessions and events.
2. Download the ISTE19 app.
For a comprehensive look at just about everything that's happening at the conference, download the official ISTE19 mobile app from the App Store or Google Play after June 1. You'll be able to browse conference news, see what’s trending on social media and read the program guide to get a sense of the vast learning opportunities available, which might inspire you to attend ISTE20 in Anaheim.
3. Stay tuned to the ISTE Blog.
Even onsite, attendees can’t keep up with everything that’s going on in the convention center. Whether you’re in Philadelphia or following along from home, you can read up on ideas you can use in your classroom or school. Continue to check back after conference as we post ISTE19 videos and highlights.
