What is ISTE?

Whether or not you have heard of ISTE, the voice you hear as you read it’s own descriptors will resonate with those of the CESI tribe.  

ISTE is home to a community of global educators who believe in the power of technology to transform teaching & learning.

We are a passionate community of change-makers who believe in the power of technology to transform teaching and learning, accelerate innovation and solve tough problems in education. At our core, we believe technology is the catalyst for creating an ecosystem where students drive their own learning, solve problems in their communities and become a force for good in physical and digital environments. Our work is supported by three pillars: A community of passionate educators; knowledge and thought leadership; and standards that guide the innovative and effective use of technology.  LinkedIn

Based in Washington DC, it is only only four years younger than CESI, having been founded in 1979.  It was formerly called The International Council for Computers in Education (ICCE).

Three members of the executive of CESI had the good fortune to ‘attend’ the 2020 conference in late November.  The event is massive – 11,782 participants.  Over the next while a number of articles will appear reflecting what each took from particular sessions, which they felt might be of interest to those in CESI.  We hope you enjoy them.
