How to Obtain a Position in K-12 Education:
On Tuesday, February 3, experts with hiring responsibilities shared tips and tools to help prepare current and aspiring educators to become successful job candidates.
Phi Delta Kappa's Technology Share-A-Thon was a two-hour showcase featuring tips, tools and best practices from experienced teachers. Each presenter was given just 10 minutes to demonstrate their favorite and most creative ways to incorporate technology into their teaching.
We are grateful to the following teachers, administrators and students for generously sharing their best tech tips and pointing us to incredibly useful resources.

We look forward to planning a similar event next spring or fall.
On October 14, PDK welcomed New York State policy makers to discuss "The Future of Education on Long Island." For two hours, Assemblymember Steve Englebright (member of the New York State Assembly Committee on Education), Senator John J. Flanagan (chair of the New York State Senate Committee on Education) and Regent Roger Tilles (representing Judicial District X) fielded questions and spoke frankly about the issues that are important to educators — including charter schools, APPR, state funding, ELL policy, and the influence of business on education. The program was moderated by Prof. Ken Lindblom, PDK at SBU Chapter President, who noted that the panelists' "experience, advice, candor, and good humor provided productive direction as we approach the important and challenging work that faces us."
