ISTE - one of the biggest educational technology conferences in the world
ISTE, short for International Society for Technology in Education, is a nonprofit organization, “home to a passionate community of global educators who believe in the power of technology to transform teaching and learning, accelerate innovation and solve tough problems in education.”
ISTE is one of the biggest EdTech conferences in the World and the place where you can meet and collaborate with educators from around the world, explore trending topics revolutionizing the way we teach and learn, and discover the latest tools that you can utilize in your classroom.
Last year, ISTE attracted 20396 attendees and exhibitors. Among attendees, 87% were decision-makers or educational technology influencers. The hottest topics by number of sessions were “Creativity and productivity tools” (113 sessions) and “Innovative learning environments”(108 sessions).

Inspiring talks and presentations
At ISTE, you can attend many informative and inspiring talks and presentations from prominent keynote speakers, teachers, educational technology administrators, as well as students (last year there were 631 student presenters!).
Furthermore, the Clear Touch Interactive team, as well as Dr. Edward Tse, have prepared a number of Snowflake MultiTeach-related presentations that you can attend, at the Clear Touch Booth 2202, between 25-27 June.
The Clear Touch Interactive team will focus on subjects such as interactive lessons, investigative learning, Project Based Learning (PBL), student collaboration, the Nodes app, the Media app, and Zones in Snowflake MultiTeach.
Dr. Edward Tse will deliver the two following presentations:
- YouTube Linked Lessons (Monday 25th 11:30-12:00, Wednesday 27th - 11:30-12:00, Clear Touch Booth 2202)
- Personalized learning with Zones (Tuesday 26th 11:30-12:00, Clear Touch Booth 2202)
In his presentations, Dr. Edward Tse will discuss how video is increasingly being used for just-in-time learning coupled with hands-on practice.
There is a growing body of research that shows how embodied hands-on practice and creative expression helps to bridge the gap between knowledge and skills. Learners are increasingly turning to YouTube for learning and many YouTube Creators capture millions of views for their educational videos.
He will demonstrate how you can take the most popular videos on YouTube and turn them into
interactive lesson activities, that will engage students and inspire creative and critical thinking.
