The Places You’ll Go: K-12 Edtech Conferences to Check Out in 2017

The Places You’ll Go: K-12 Edtech Conferences to Check Out in 2017

Last week, we pulled together our picks for what higher-ed conferences, expos and events you should know about in 2017. Now we’re back, and this time it’s all about K-12.

This free downloadable calendar has all the dates, locations and details you need to begin planning which events and conferences to check out next year. Each listing links directly to the event website, where you can find out more or sign up. Enjoy!

Here’s a FAQ about our illustration:

Green, red, orange, blue: What do these colors mean?

Of course, anyone can attend any conference. However, we’ve designated the primary audience for these events: Blue events are built around educators, but some of these events involve exhibitor halls. Red events emphasize the business of edtech more than pedagogy. Orange events are more tightly focused around a topic or specific audience, such as libraries or community colleges. And green events are our very own EdSurge Summits, which bring together dozens of companies and hundreds of educators in districts around the country! (Check it out—they’re free for teachers and administrators!)

Your link took me to a conference that already happened or doesn’t exist yet. What gives?

Don’t worry—we confirmed with conference organizers all dates for future events that aren’t yet listed on their site.

Aw, you left out my favorite event!

Sorry about that! Feel free to add a comment on this piece with details about the event you like the best, or shoot us an email at

Will you update this presentation in the future?
