The Celebration of Technology and Learning
“Replacement” event fills the void left by the cancellation of NJEA Convention and WNET Celebration of Teaching & Learning
Were you disappointed when the NJEA Convention was cancelled due to the devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy? Have you been concerned about how you might gain some of the knowledge that convention programs had to offer? Fear not – NJEA has scheduled a special event to provide additional professional learning for members.
In recognition of the convention cancellation and the decision by WNET to also cancel the 2013 Celebration of Teaching and Learning, NJEA will partner with the New Jersey Center for Teaching and Learning (NJCTL), Verizon Foundation, and TEQ, Inc., to hold the Celebration of Technology and Learning at the Somerset Doubletree Hotel and Conference Center on Saturday, March 9. The registration fee is just $15 for NJEA members. Learn more
