NYSCATE 2014: I’m Keynote Speaker Shawn Bay and I’d Like Your Input.

By

November 19th, 2014

NYSCATE’s annual conference has always been about interaction and collaboration. Sure we’re a bunch of technology geeks, but technology is only useful insofar as it helps people.

I’m honored and excited to be one of NYSCATE 2014’s keynote speakers. I’ll be speaking on Monday, November 24th at 2:30 p.m. in the Rochester Convention Center’s Exhibit Hall. Right now, I’m planning on speaking about how education data use has evolved over the past 17 years and how educational technologies can help each child receive a personalized education.

One of my conference goals is to embrace the NYSCATE ethos by making my speech interactive and accessible. With that in mind, from now until midnight on Saturday, November 22nd, I’ll be accepting questions and topic suggestions for my speech. Please post them in the comments section below this blog post or email them to info@escholar.com. I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to address everyone’s inquiries, but I’ll do my best. I hope to nurture the wonderful collaborative culture of NYSCATE and I need your help to do so!

I’ve attended this conference for multiple years now and love the passion it exudes. It’s like Burning Man for technology using educators and administrators in New York State. Sure, it’s a lot colder in Rochester and we don’t burn anything…okay, maybe this isn’t the best analogy, but like Burning Man, this is a gathering of passionate and creative people. NYSCATE is an excellent opportunity to learn from one another, to empower through collaboration. There are so many knowledgeable educational technologists in this state. For a few days each year we’re drawn together by our common goal of improving educational outcomes through technology. I’m excited and I hope you are too. If you haven’t registered yet, do it now at the NYSCATE website.

I look forward to seeing you all soon.

Best,

Shawn
