“My passion for educational technology lies in the difference that it makes in the classroom. When used correctly, technology allows our students to be more engaged in their work and learning becomes more individualized.”
The difference NYSCATE makes
“The biggest benefit of NYSCATE is meeting with other likeminded people in the educational technology world. NYSCATE helped me build many solid relationships with a variety of technology leaders throughout the state. The experiences that I gained on the conference committee and board of directors have helped me grow as a professional and a person.”
