Join us for this FREE conference on using technologies in education. SUNY Empire State College and the Saratoga Springs City School District will host its annual Learning with Innovative Technology (LIT) Conference at the Saratoga Springs High School, 1 Blue Streak Boulevard, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.

New This Year for our 3rd Annual | 3 Events

For our 3rd Annual, we will have 3 events combined into 1 day! We are excited to announce that EdCampAccessNY and Digital Citizenship, Metaliteracy, and Micro-credentialing: K-12 Connections will be joining the traditional LIT event this year to provide even MORE professional development opportunities for our attendees!

EdCampAccessNY

#edcampaccessNY will be at LIT this year and have a space for breakout discussions and a "technology for all learners" test-kitchen! Edcamp Access NY's mission is to bring together K-12+ educators, service providers, administrators, and other professionals in the field to maximize learning opportunities for individuals who struggle with academics, behaviors, social skills, executive functioning skills, and beyond. The goal is simply to make environments and instruction accessible and appropriate for all learning needs. Meet the founding members of Edcamp Access. Much more to come on the EdCampAccessNY website!

Digital Citizenship, Metaliteracy, and Micro-credentialing: K-12 Connections
