The New York State Education Department recognizes that technology is a powerful tool that provides opportunities to more efficiently and effectively personalize learning, including providing individualized support and resources, tailoring instruction and learning experiences to support individual learners’ strengths and needs, and promoting culturally- and linguistically- responsive learning environments.


NYSCATE, with participation from NYSED, will host a one-day conference centered on exploring the ways that schools and districts can utilize technology to facilitate personalized learning to meet the needs of all New York State Students.  Educators in all roles are invited to join the conversation and share expertise as we work together to scale successful programs and practices and ensure all students receive a quality education that prepares them for school, work, and life in the 21st Century.

 Opening Remarks from Commissioner MaryEllen Elia      Commissioner

Prior to her appointment in New York, she served as superintendent of schools in Hillsborough County, Florida, for 10 years.
