  • Volunteer to Help at The Early Learning Playground at the ISTE Conference!

    Hello Everyone!

    The ELN Leadership Team is excited to announce we have opportunities for you to help CREATE EXPLORERS in the Early Learning Playground at ISTE. 

    The Playground is Monday, June 24, 8:00–11:30 AM in the Philadelphia Convention Center.

    We have planned for another fun, exciting, and low-stress place to play with robots, tangible tech, apps, and more, all appropriate for young learners ages 4-8... now we need some friendly folks to help us.

    We are looking for people who like to play with tech and to get others playing with technologies. The ideal volunteers are friendly and wanting to participate with others who are interested in young learners. You DO NOT need to be an expert in anything other than playing well with others... come explore new tools and some old favorites with us.

    Use this form to sign up:

    We will provide details as to your assigned time as it gets closer to the Conference.

    If you have ANY questions, please email Gail Lovely: Read More
