Kenneth R. Olson Middle School, Tabernacle, NJ
REGISTRATION OPENS SOON.
What is the future of literacy instruction? Whether in our classrooms, online, or with new AI technology on the horizon, change is inevitable, and we must prepare ourselves for the future.
On September 21, 2019, we shall gather together at the Kenneth R. Olson Middle School in Tabernacle, NJ, to focus on the future of literacy instruction for grades K-16.
New Jersey educators gather at the NJCTE conference to benefit from professional programs, panels, discussions, exhibits of books and materials, idea exchanges, guest speakers, and shared classroom experiences. Additionally, many opportunities exist for educators to participate as speakers, chairpersons, recorders, and to assist with conference preparation.
Announcing our amazing keynote speaker: Dr. Kristen Hawley Turner (@teachkht) – professor and director of teacher education at Drew University in New Jersey. Her research focuses on the intersections between technology and literacy, and she works with teachers across content areas to implement effective literacy instruction and to incorporate technology in meaningful ways. She is the co-author of Connected Reading: Teaching Adolescent Readers in a Digital World and Argument in the Real World: Teaching Students to Read and Write Digital Texts. She is also the founder and director of the Drew Writing Project and Digital Literacies Collaborative.
Educators at any level and at any phase of their career, including pre-service teachers, are encouraged to attend and/or present.
The conference is an affordable professional development opportunity. Conference registration includes lunch and an NJCTE membership. A separate Authors Breakfast is planned for an additional charge.
