ISTELive 23 takes place June 25-28 in Philadelphia, and we can’t wait! Every year, as the US school year is coming to a close, we look forward to gathering with colleagues, partners, and customers to celebrate recent accomplishments, share our latest product and feature updates, and get a look at what’s next in education technology. This year, the Microsoft Education team has lots of exciting developments to share: from our new Learning Accelerators, to demonstrating the new and updated features built into our inclusive, engaging learning tools like Flip and Minecraft Education. Take a look at our full event schedule and read on for some of the most anticipated sessions.

Spotlight on Solutions

To highlight some of the most timely topics and tools, we’ll be presenting two “must see” Spotlight on Solutions sessions at ISTELive 23. “Unlocking AI’s potential: Transform learning experiences and prepare for the future” explores the immense potential of AI in education and how it can empower K-12 teachers to create transformative and engaging learning experiences. “The future of learning with Microsoft Flip” will demonstrate how Flip can transform your classroom into a fun and inclusive learning community, powered by AI capabilities such as Topic Copilot, Reading Coach, and other innovations. You’ll also get a chance to participate in a live Flip group and share your ideas with other educators.

Microsoft Learn Live Classroom

Artificial intelligence and its potential applications in education have been among the hottest topics of the year, and we’ve been partnering with members of the education community to responsibly solve some of the most pressing challenges of working with AI. At ISTELive 23, we’re hosting several sessions that will give attendees insight into some of the AI-powered applications being used in classrooms right now and explore upcoming opportunities to ensure that this developing technology supports educators to help every student thrive.

In “The era of AI: a discussion on its potential for education“ we’ll hear from a panel of educators about how they’re using AI in their classrooms today, and discuss how we can all maximize its transformative potential. An additional session in the Microsoft Learn Live Classroom that explores AI and its applications is “AI in education: Opportunities and tools.”

In addition to the AI-centered topics, there are lots of other educational innovations to discover. Get a hands-on look at the new Learning Accelerators and learn how to use them to enhance your lessons and motivate students to search smarter with “Discover Learning Accelerators: Search Coach and Search Progress.” “Unlock student engagement & maximize learning potential with Minecraft Education” presents a fun and engaging way for students to learn critical digital citizenship and cybersecurity skills, including managing screen time, social interactions, online spending, and recognizing malware. Sessions including “Streamlining lesson planning with Teams Classwork“ and “Curate an inclusive classroom with Microsoft Accessibility tools” will share valuable information to help educators save time, and make sure they’re providing an environment that ensures every student has the best seat in the house. 

At ISTELive 23, join us in the Microsoft Learn Live Classroom (204B) for these sessions as well as many more workshops featuring our new Learning Accelerators, and interactive new Minecraft Education worlds. All workshops will be hosted by experts, and attendees will have the opportunity for hands-on learning at a Windows device to learn how to bring the latest Microsoft products and features like Reading Coach, Math Coach, Search Coach, Speaker Coach, and Classwork for Teams into their classrooms.
