Learning Technology Grant Conference
The Learning Technology Grants (LTG) program funds School Districts and Consortia to develop, implement, and share innovative programs that utilize learning technologies to personalize learning, increase access to high-quality, rigorous learning experiences, and provide professional development programs to assist teachers and educational leaders to effectively utilize learning technology to enhance teaching and learning.
As required by CRR 144.8, the recipients of 2018-2021 Learning Technology Grants discussed their program results during two virtual half-day sessions — held via WebEx — on the mornings of July 14 and 15. The event was open to all NYS superintendents, principals, technology directors, and other school and district-level educators. An estimated 200 educators attended the conference
Each day two informative panel discussions were held where each of the LTG recipients shared their experiences with the audience and responded to questions from the moderator. Topics included success stories and innovative programming, overcoming unexpected challenges, and sharing valuable resources such as planning documents, curriculum maps, training videos and other project artifacts.
Presenters provided actionable suggestions that were designed to assist with replicating all or portions of the programs presented. Attendees were provided access to program resources and contact information should they wish to pursue program implementation .
Both sessions of the conference were recorded and will soon be made available.
Resources provided by the LTG grant recipients are available on the Learning Technology Grants (LTG) page.
