What

Microsoft Education at ISTE 2017 | June 25-28, 2017 | San Antonio, TX

 

On May 2nd, the team at Microsoft Education shared its vision for helping empower students of today to create the world of tomorrow. We plan on bringing all that excitement to the ISTE Conference and Expo this year, spread across 140 teacher talks and through a new hands-on interactive experience room at the event. We’ll also have sessions to include those who can’t attend (#notatISTE), along with new developments from Hack the Classroom and the ever-growing worlds of Minecraft: Education Edition.

More than 15,000 attendees are expected to converge at the ISTE Conference & Expo in San Antonio, Texas to participate in over 1,000 professional development sessions, with more than 550 exhibitors representing over 20 distinct categories.  We hope to see you there and look forward to having you try our latest devices and tools tailored for teachers.

Please register today and join us at ISTE 2017.
