In the pursuit of education technology, the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) was established to provide an avenue for people to have access to state and federal EdTech policies and promote tools for learning. For more than three decades now, ISTE has conducted an annual conference and expo for educators around the world. It is a global forum where people from the academe, chief technology officers, policy makers, administrators, and other specialists gather for the latest professional learning in the field of EdTech.
