  • ISTELib Playground Proposals for #ISTE20

    The ISTELib 2020 Playground Proposal Form is LIVE! The ISTELib Playground was the most attended playground of ISTE 2019, and it was because of the amazing presenters like you! 

    What's it like presenting at a playground?
    - Playground slots are 45 minutes in length, but unlike a regular session, participants are hopping from table to table learning about the various products, tools, and strategies. You'll most likely have people at your table from 5-10 minutes. It's very informal and fun. Don't think of it like a "session". It's a time for you to show off something you love or a strategy you've used in your space, and answer any questions from attendees.

    What are some examples of topics?
    - Social Media Tools
    - Equity Resources
    - Makerspaces
    - Digital Storytelling
    - Parent Collaboration

    Do I have to present alone?
    Of course not. You can present with a colleague, or you can present with a vendor if you'd like so they can answer any technical questions people may have. But this is not a sales floor. If you are a vendor, feel free to reach out on Twitter to see if another librarian would want to present with you on the same tool/topic.

    What if I have questions?
    Email with any questions.
