ISTE Blog Submission Guidelines

Write for us! The ISTE blog publishes articles that help educators use technology in their schools, districts and classrooms to revolutionize learning. We focus on strategies, projects and initiatives that address the ISTE Standards and empower all educators to harness technology for learning. We’re looking for content written by ISTE members that illustrates how to use technology aligned to the ISTE Standards.

Who Reads Our Content

We strive to inform and engage educators at all levels, including classroom teachers, education leaders, edtech coaches and coordinators, library media specialists, teacher educators and anyone else interested in using technology to support deeper learning.

What We Publish

  • How-to articles

  • Classroom, school and district success stories

What We Don’t Publish

  • Research articles, case studies or literature reviews: ISTE's content hub is not a research journal. If you want to write an engaging short article about your research, please send a query to

  • Press releases and sponsored content: We do not interview company executives or publish promotional content. If you are a working educator who would like to write about a tool you use in the classroom, please send a query to

  • Personnel changes or district/school news: We do not cover news about districts acquiring new products.

What You Should Know

  • Our writers are ISTE members who are educators or education thought leaders.

  • We are looking for submissions that clearly connect content to the ISTE Standards.

  • If you write for us, you’ll earn our sincere gratitude, a byline and respect from your peers, but no money.

  • Please identify all adults mentioned in examples or as sources by first and last name, position and/or job title, school or district, city and state/province, and/or country.

  • Avoid hypothetical situations or composite characters. If you must use them to illustrate your point, make it clear they’re hypothetical.

  • We include no more than two author names per article. We grant bylines only to writers, not to contributors, mentors, supervisors or partners who worked on a project.

  • We prize diversity and look for articles from different regions that serve all populations, including rural and urban, schools that are big and small, and those that serve students across the economic spectrum. We want to hear from writers from diverse backgrounds, years of service and experience. And we want articles that focus on different grade bands, cover a range of subjects and highlight a variety of technologies.
