7 Protips to Max Out ISTELive24

Traveling to ISTELive24 in Denver on June 23–26? Maximize your conference experience with these suggested sessions, Expo Hall advice, and more. 👍

As we prepare for the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTELive) conference in Denver, June 23-26, we want to maximize every attendee's experience. Last year's ISTELive drew over 17,700 participants! Whether you're a veteran of EdTech conferences or a newbie, these protips aim to elevate your ISTELive experience a mile high (get it?). 🏔️ 

1. Plan Ahead

ISTELive24 will be stacked with hundreds of sessions, keynotes, and networking events​​. Review the conference programming and prioritize the sessions most relevant to your needs. Some sessions require pre-registration, so secure your spot early! Here are a few Quizizz-friendly events we hope you'll consider 😉:

‍2. Pack This Must-Have Item

We asked our Quizizz ISTE veterans and rookies to share a must-have item that they're packing for the conference. Here's what our team had to say:

Kyle: "Hoodie. It’s always cold in the conference halls."

Jackson: "Comfortable shoes."

Tyde: "My Quizizz socks!"

Melissa: "My blazers! I love pairing them with my sweet Quizizz shirts!"

Alana: "Water bottle."

Jackie: "Protein bars."

3. Go See the City

Experience ISTELive outside of the convention center. Take advantage of pre-conference activities, including tours and museum visits​​. It's a great way to build your network while learning about Denver. 🏙️

4. Social Media is Your Friend

Follow the official conference hashtag (#ISTELive) and engage in online conversations across all social media platforms. This will give you real-time updates on events, connect you with other attendees, and amplify your voice in the EdTech community. You can even follow @quizizz on Twitter/X or IG to see what we're up to. 💜

5. Attend Virtual Sessions

ISTELive 24 offers wonderful virtual content to complement the in-person experience​​. Check out these sessions if you need a break from the Expo Hall and the in-person events. If you're #notatISTE, keep this option in mind too! 👍

‍6. Get Your Questions Ready for Edtech Companies

Prepare some questions to ask EdTech companies at the Expo Hall. Consider these:

  • How do you collect and respond to educator feedback?
  • What specific problem does your product solve?
  • Can you give a quick "school corridor" pitch of your product?
  • What kind of support and training do you provide for educators implementing your tool?‍
7. Visit Quizizz Booth #948  

Finally, please visit Quizizz Booth #948! As a teaching platform built by educators for educators, we're thrilled to meet you face-to-face and hear about your experiences. Did we mention there's free swag? 🎉
