Opportunity to Polish Your Teaching Skills at 2019 NYCDOE School Technology Summit

As teachers we always need opportunities to borrow ideas and strategies to be more effective teachers in the classroom. It's better to invest our time and energy in attending PD sessions to enrich and polish our instructional skills rather than struggle in the classroom on everyday basis. The Department of Education offers 2019 NYCDOE School Technology Summit this July 31, 2019. It's a great opportunity to build your Professional Learning Network #PLN.

Check out program dates, duration, specific opportunities, as well as requirements for the work following the launch by viewing the program overviews on the employee InfoHub.

Use this application to apply. 


The program is targeted to experienced technology users who are interested in further developing their expertise and sharing with others.

If you feel you are a baby tech educator, here are some options for those beginning their tech journey. If you are not an experienced technology user, consider visiting the training tab to find our full suite of learning opportunities including options for beginners like Get Going with Google and Apple After Hours. Public view of these opportunities can be found at You can also sign up for #NYCSchoolsTech Summit on Digital Inclusion(May 23rd) or annual Tech Summit (July 31).
