The mission of NYSCATE (New York State Association for Computers and Technologies in Education) is “to lead the transformation of teaching and learning through technology.” In their ongoing efforts to further the use of technology in schools, NYSCATE regularly offers workshops and webinars that show how educational technology can optimize teaching and learning.
A few headlines from a recent internet search on K-12 relief funding in schools include “What Congressional Covid Funding Means for K-12 Schools,” “States Scramble to Disburse K-12 Relief Funds Ahead of Deadline,” and “States are Waffling Over Billions in K-12 Federal Relief. Schools Are Getting Antsy.” Clearly, educators want clear-cut information on funding including how much, ways to use it, and when to expect it.
We’re approaching the one-year mark of distance teaching and learning for most of our country’s schools. Last spring when schools closed, teachers had to quickly navigate new and unfamiliar technology so that they could maintain some degree of educational normalcy for their students. Many education-focused companies and organizations developed and facilitated a variety of teacher training courses that centered on software and platforms that districts invested in to deliver lessons to the millions of students now having to school remotely. Courses included learning the basic tools of GSuite for Education or Microsoft Office 365, creating and delivering lessons using specific software and applications (think Zoom), and maneuvering the complexity of all these apps, platforms, and software to deliver lessons that would engage students so that they would show up to live lessons when scheduled. Our nation’s teachers handled what they could (with blood, sweat, and tears) and came out of this unprecedented situation with more education technology knowledge than they had before this.
Boxlight is excited to announce the spring webinar series, Transforming Learning in the Classroom, featuring five webinars to help you improve upon important professional development and STEM integration in your school.

Boxlight is excited to announce the fall webinar series, “Transforming Learning in the Classroom,” featuring six webinars to help you find ways to transform learning with the right technologies and best practices for your classroom. All of the presenters are working in schools every day and making an impact, offering you real insights from real leaders.
The series will begin on September 19, 2018 at 4:30 p.m. ET with “Atlanta Public Schools Secrets to Success: The Odd Couple.” The educators hosting each webinar in the series use and manage technology every day in their classrooms and districts to engage their students and encourage collaboration. The webinars were developed to help educators learn how to utilize classroom technology to promote students’ learning, and gain valuable insights and best practices from those who know what works best.

Third-Grade Teacher, Fredericksburg Elementary, Fredericksburg, TX
Charli Mullen’s experience with Mimio began the year she started teaching at Fort Sam Houston Elementary School in San Antonio. She was blessed to have a forward-thinking technology director who encouraged new ideas, creative thinking, and pushing the boundaries of what was considered “standard teaching practices.” Mimio just seemed “right” to her; everything flowed and she just couldn't get enough information about it.
Charli’s technology director hosted a Tech Tuesday every week, which she attended without fail during her whole first year at that district, full of questions and ideas for how she could use Mimio better in the classroom.
Join us for the final session of: Getting More from Your Lessons with Mimio, presented by Instructional Technology Specialist Lindy George and Elementary Teacher Claire Pavia.
