IDEA relies on partners to be able to achieve its mission: To inspire, connect and provide the educational community with opportunities that transform teaching and learning through technology.
We have a wide variety of partners who share in our mission in various ways. Whether you are a large corporation, tech start-up, or fellow nonprofit, we welcome you to join our team of partners and help us help our teachers.
We have three paths for collaboration. Each category is instrumental in helping IDEA thrive and support educators.
As an IDEA Partner, you will be able to build brand awareness among your target demographic and showcase your company as a leader in educational technology and best practices. View full corporate partner benefit packages here.
But that isn’t even the best part. As a bronze, silver, gold, or platinum partner, you’ll receive exclusive Booth Placement, Recognition, and discounted conference benefits at IDEAcon, IDEA’s annual conference. In addition, you’ll have the exclusive opportunity to engage with IDEA and our members throughout the entire year AND you’ll be able to partner with us on professional learning that qualify for Illinois Professional Development Hours educators need each year.
Are you a 501(c)(3) or a higher-education institution? We’d love to have you as an IDEA Innovation Association Member. View the entire benefit package here.
When you collaborate with us as an Innovation Association, you’ll have the opportunity to build brand awareness and showcase your company as a leader in educational technology.
