Clifton, NJ – February 18, 2016 – ClassLink announced its designation as the exclusive Event Sponsor of the Long Island Connected Educator Summit, an annual convening of forward-thinking and passionate educators who firmly believe that innovation is essential to increasing student engagement and achievement.
Hosted by Farmingdale Public Schools, the one-day event brings together hundreds of educators from across New York and surrounding states. In keeping with its theme of innovation, the Summit utilizes an unconventional format, opening with a group discussion among participants and scheduled collaborative sessions, followed by informal learning sessions that are designed on the spot.
Summit founder and organizer, Dr. Bill Brennan, Lead Innovator (Respectful Disruptor) at Farmingdale Public Schools, explained why the conference has enjoyed strong growth year after year, “Our community of educators is committed to innovation and collaboration, so the opportunity to meet like-minded innovators has proven quite compelling.” Speaking on the role of ClassLink as this year’s Event Sponsor and learning partner, Brennan stated, “ClassLink shares our enthusiasm for innovation. They have consistently demonstrated that increasing access to digital education resources is an important means to improving educational outcomes, so they are a terrific partner for our community.”
ClassLink’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Jim McVety, echoed the sentiments of Dr. Brennan, “The work being done by Dr. Brennan, Farmingdale Schools, and members of the Long Island education technology community is so important. It’s a privilege to be welcomed into this event and to bring not just our technology, but the people behind it.
