Digital learning is at the forefront of every conversation about the future of education and is a crucial component to facilitate student achievement. On Thursday, March 3, at the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal, NJSBA will host an interactive program offering a variety of sessions covering the most pressing school technology challenges in advancing digital learning in the classroom.
The Technology Conference will include a variety of breakout sessions, and an interactive networking lunch, offering an opportunity to participate in round table discussions on hot topics in digital learning. The program runs from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with continental breakfast and registration starting at 8:30 a.m. This program offers four Board Member Academy credits.
As a result of this conference, districts will walk away with solutions to help promote digital learning in the classroom.
The day will include a keynote speech by Travis Allen, the founder and CEO of the iSchool Initiative.
Travis Allen is a young visionary promoting digital learning in the classroom. Before graduating high school, Travis created a viral YouTube video on revolutionizing America’s education through the use of mobile technology.
Today, he is the CEO of the iSchool Initiative and has presented in more than 40 states and seven countries, allowing him to reach an audience of more than 200,000 people. He has been featured on CNN, Huffington Post and in Forbes magazine. Travis is quickly becoming one of the most influential leaders of the emerging digital learning movement.
