It’s never been a more exciting, yet challenging time, to be an educator in New York. Classrooms are more diverse, there are an increasing number of tech tools out there (which can help teachers address the needs of all of their students), yet teachers are more timestretched than ever. So how can these tech tools be integrated into lessons?

To help with this, Texthelp is gearing up for a statewide focus on literacy and technology in New York.

We're coming to New York

What will we be doing?

Meeting Educators

We’ll be attending lots of great events this year, meeting New York educators and finding out more about the challenges they face. 

Here’s a handy list to show you where we plan to visit - we’d love to see you there!
