This week’s virtual training from NJSBA Facebook Live events will include programs on esports, the arts and new managed services. 

Facebook Live Event: Esports in Education – Tuesday at 3 p.m.  In this session, we will learn how schools are using esports teams to provide extracurricular activities for students that provide safe, inclusive spaces to play. Learn how your school can leverage competitive gaming to create opportunities for addressing social and emotional learning, as well as addressing pressing issues around health and wellness – especially when it comes to making good choices around gaming. 

Facebook Live Event: A Conversation with ARTSEDNJ – Wednesday at 1 p.m.  In this session, ARTSEDNJ will discuss the national celebration of Arts in Our School Month (March) and what New Jersey has planned. We will also talk about the extension of the celebration by ARTSEDNJ through the “Arts Ed in Bloom” campaign throughout the spring and culminating with the N.J. Governor’s Awards in Arts Education in May.  

Facebook Live Event: Cloud and Managed Services Give Districts Robust IT Infrastructure – Thursday at 11 a.m.  Government agencies and school districts across New Jersey are striving to reach ever-higher levels of accessibility, efficiency, and civic service, thanks, in large part, to ongoing advances in information technology. Using these transformative technologies requires a well-designed data center and cloud-computing environment, which includes: 

  • Managed Services
  • Backup-as-a-Service (BAAS)
  • Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS)
  • Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)
  • Virtual Desktop
  • Security-as-a-Service

Join us to learn more about how managed services deliver proven, cost-effective solutions that increase operational efficiencies, enable development, and provide school district staff and students with a secure, redundant, and powerfully backed infrastructure.
