This post was originally about the hashtags at ISTE 2022. It was definitely confusing which hashtag to use. When you are at an event following the hashtags is a great way to meet new people and to find meetup opportunities. See below for how to manage hashtags for an event as well as how to use Wakelet to share your learning!
The Original Post
This post was originally just for ISTELive 22. However, it has information that is good for any event:
The official ISTE hashtag is #ISTElive. As is often the case for a conference, not everyone is using the same hashtag. Here is how you can follow ALL the hashtags for this year’s ISTE conference in New Orleans. I am also including how you can find me at ISTE!
The year is 2022 but this is NOT part of the hashtag. If you are trying to follow along on social media you will see a variety of hashtags. You can see from the official ISTE Twitter that the 22 is NOT part of the hashtag. There is a space. #ISTElive 22. As you can imagine there are many people combining this to be #ISTELive22. You will also see people tweeting on #ISTE22.
We’re excited to be back LIVE and in person in #NewOrleans, June 26-29!— ISTE (@iste) March 29, 2022
No matter where you live, how you learn or what your comfort level, there’s an experience tailored for you at #ISTELive 22.

When an event is going on you want to add the hashtag to all of your social media posts. This allows anyone attending, or not attending, to find information related to the event. This expands your sharing to people who may not be following you.
The topic is ISTE and you want to know about all the events, giveaways, and most importantly the LEARNING! What are teachers at ISTELive so excited about this year that they want to tell you about it?! The hashtag is going to be a treasure trove of resources and tips.
