IDEAcon is one of the Midwest’s largest ed tech conferences. Hosted by IDEA every February, thousands of educators from Illinois and across the U.S. join together to learn about sound pedagogical practices in education and how to leverage technology to engage, inspire, and reach all learners.
This 4-day conference includes inspirational keynote speakers and hundreds of educator-led sessions focused on engaging students, building relationships, and integrating tools to foster academic achievement. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit 200+ vendors, explore state of the art educational technology resources, participate in hands-on learning explorations, and network with other passionate educators in our exhibit hall experience.
IDEAcon 2022 is Feb. 14 - 17, 2022. See you there!
Why attend IDEAcon
IDEAcon is hard to put into words. Throughout the years, the IDEA Team has seen how educators from all over the Midwest have joined together to find solutions to common problems, help build each other up, and have (just a little) fun.
Here is what some of our 2020 attendees had to say about IDEAcon:
“The energy at this conference was amazing.”
The best part was “the wide variety of speakers and workshops.”
“The atmosphere was very fun, we need that!”
