MAHWAH, N.J. – Ramapo College of New Jersey will welcome more than 600 school administrators and superintendents from the Tri-State area when it hosts the Tech for Schools Summit on Friday, February 26. The event, which is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., is sponsored by EdSurge, an independent information resource firm which helps schools find, select and use the right instructional technology to support all learners.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to bring together superintendents and administrators from K-12 on a college campus to discuss the future of technology in the classroom,” said Aaron Lorenz, Dean, School of Social Science and Human Services at Ramapo College. “Too often there is not enough conversation between K-12 and higher education and we aim to bridge that gap by discussing how we can use the technology of the 21st century in a collaborative and creative way that impacts our students and their lifelong learning.”
The summit will be held in the Bill Bradley Sports and Recreation Center at Ramapo College.
