On March 16th, Maine-Endwell High School served as host for the 4th Annual Southern Tier ConnectED Conference in collaboration with Broome Tioga BOCES, NYSCATE, and The Teacher Center Networks. This year's ConnectED conference sold out with over 700 attendees representing 26 school districts from around the region and state.

The event kicked off with a keynote address from Chris Lehmann , high school principal at the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, and co-author of Building Schools 2.0: How to Create the Schools We Need .

Following the keynote address, attendees chose from a record number of 78 one-hour sessions to see first-hand how teachers are using instructional technology in their classrooms with students. Some of the sessions that were offered this year highlighted themes like digital formative assessment, digital citizenship, creating classroom videos, and many others. Also, this year for the first time, there were 3rd and 5th grade students leading sessions on Google Drive, Chromebook apps, and Breakout EDU.

A sincere THANK YOU TO ALL for making this event a success! More Connecting - Collaborating - Creating - Communicating to follow in 2019!
