NJSBA’s Technology Conference will include a keynote speech given by Acting Commissioner of Education Kimberley Harrington.

At the Technology Conference, morning and afternoon sessions will be presented by technology experts. The day will also include a “lunch and learn,” offering an opportunity for attendees to participate in roundtable discussions on a variety of hot topics in technology.

A special session from the New Jersey Department of Education on the “Future Ready” initiative will wrap up the day. Being “Future Ready” is being committed to helping schools across New Jersey reach their technology goals while building a district’s strategic plan.
