Conferencing with the Commissioner

Mineola High School students Sanskriti Bimal and Marina Iodice had a unique opportunity to join the NYS Commissioner of Education MaryEllen Elia, and students from several other school districts in a special virtual lunch. The purpose was for the Commissioner to lead an informal conversation on technology in the classroom and garner student feedback on the positives and negatives of it, as well as how teachers are using it to support instruction. Mineola’s students were joined by others from the Albany City School District, Poughkeepsie City School District, and Wayne-Finger Lakes P-Tech.
