For the more traditional 1.5 hour programs listed in the Convention Program, members who are present at an entire session receive a professional development certificate upon exiting the classroom.
For High Tech Hall, NJEA has established the following procedure:
Members who spend time in High Tech Hall may document their learning using a log sheet that they can pick up in High Tech Hall. No certificates will be available for these activities. The log will detail the titles, presenters and a brief description of each activity with a place to identify the amount of time spent at each demonstration area. Members may present this log to their supervisor/principal following their visit to Atlantic City to document the amount of time spent in learning in these areas of High Tech Hall.
NJEA recommends that members speak with their supervisor/principal prior to the NJEA Convention to discuss how much time they intend to spend in High Tech Hall. This procedure is consistent with practices supported by the N.J. Department of Education. Members are reminded that all professional learning activities must be aligned with their individual professional development plan to be eligible for accrual toward the professional development requirement.
