Topics in ISTE Connect

Each of these topic-based forums is home to focused conversation about the latest edtech trends and ideas.

 

Plus, all members have access to The Commons for conversation that doesn’t fall under one of the topics listed above. And that’s not all! Conversations in ISTE Connect are tagged by sub-topic and job role, helping members find the answers and resources they need.

ISTE Community Leaders

Our member community would not be the same without our esteemed group of ISTE Community Leaders. These year-round volunteers contribute hundreds of hours to sharing practical guidance and accelerating good practice, advancing the field of edtech as they do so. They’re the special sauce that make our community exceptional.

“The value of joining a PLN is that you meet people with the same interests as you or who work in an area of education that’s very similar to yours, so you can collaborate. You build community and connections across the nation and internationally. It’s a chance to really make a home within ISTE that’s very personal to you.” 
— Mia Kim Williams, ISTE Teacher Education Network
