ISTE or NOT? Either way, we have great ways for you to participate: Global Ed Day, Hack Education, and

Are you attending the 2018 ISTE conference in Chicago this month? Or wishing you were? Either way, we have three fun opportunities for you to participate--some in-person, or all online.

1. HACK (YOUR) EDUCATION, Saturday, June 23rd, all day at McCormick Place. Hack Education is the 12th annual all-day unconference held the Saturday before ISTE (not to be confused with upstart Microsoft's copycat event!). It's a great day for beginners and regular attendees alike--a community experience filled with interesting conversations in a highly social environment. To "hack" is to do something effective, even if it's not the standard or expected way. This year, for Hack Education, our loose theme is going to be how your hack your own education - thus, "Hack (Your) Education." Plus we'll have a special panel discussion on helping students hack their education. The physical event has been sold out (345) seats but we've just freed up five more spots, first-come, first-serve. After that, do consider getting on the wait-list, if you'll be at ISTE, through their registration process. ONLINE: participate online by joining the event portal at (or here), where we have a great set of community discussion questions (see the "DISCUSS" tab) about how you and others "hack your education." We'll also use the portal to give information on hopefully streaming the panel on student learning.

2. GLOBAL EDUCATION DAY, Sunday, June 24th from 2-5 PM at McCormick Place. This is a special face-to-face meeting in which you can connect and collaborate with other globally-minded educators. More information here. The physical event is sold out (255), but you can get on the relatively short wait-list (22 right now) through the ISTE registration portal. ONLINE: participate online with the physical attendees and other global educators by registering (free) at We will be streaming live on our Facebook page some of our activities for those who cannot attend in person:

3., our brand new worldwide conference on technology and learning, online and free, September 12 - 14, 2018. A joint project of and We've held 75 events over 13 years, with over 150,000 registered attendees - will be our biggest and best event ever. Sign up now to be kept informed, to express interest in presenting, or to sponsor.
