On Friday, March 8, at the Conference Center at Mercer, the NJSBA will host its annual Technology Conference. The program will run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with continental breakfast and registration starting at 8:30 a.m. The program will offer 4 Board Member Academy credits for school board members.

Dr. Repollet, Comissioner of Education

The conference will feature a keynote presentation by New Jersey Commissioner of Education  Dr. Lamont Repollet. As commissioner, Repollet has worked to redesign the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) to what he calls “DOE 2.0.” He is transitioning the department to become a model organization, strengthening teaching, leading, and learning while increasing educational equity for students across New Jersey.

Special Panel Discussion Six years ago, the Howell Township Public School’s mission of reimagined learning started with a vision. Technology was the key piece in shaping the pathways and implementing that vision, while “design thinking” allowed Howell to navigate and learn from the pitfalls along the way. Howell Township Public Schools will share the successes, challenges, strategies, and resources that have contributed to student success.

This interactive program will also offer a variety of sessions on how to advance technology in schools and districts, and a networking lunch covering hot topics in school technology.

The Conference Center at Mercer is located at 1200 Old Trenton Road, West Windsor, NJ.
