Teacher Candidates Attend NYSCATE Conference

Teacher candidates were able to attend one day of the The New York State Association for Computers and Technologies in Education (NYSCATE) annual conference in Rochester, NY.

NYSCATE is a non-profit, professional organization representing more than 25,000 technology using educators and administrators in New York State. NYSCATE is an affiliate of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), and cooperates with such partners as the New York State Education Department, state and national educational organizations, private sector corporations, and publishers to further the use of technology in our schools.

NYSCATE is involved in helping define statewide policy regarding the use of technologies in education. The conference registration fees were paid for using donations from alumni of the special education program from past Giving Days.  This represents the first professional educational conference all of these candidates have attended and will hopefully be the first of many!
