eScholar Founder and CEO Shawn Bay Headlines the 2014 NYSCATE Conference as Keynote Speaker

Shawn Bay will address hundreds of educators about data, technology and what drives transformation in education.

November 20, 2014 – Rochester, NY – Shawn Bay, Founder and CEO of eScholar, will be a keynote speaker at the 2014 New York State Association for Computers and Technologies in Education (NYSCATE) Conference. Bay’s speech will take place from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. EST on Monday, November 24 at the Rochester Convention Center.

Bay is a prominent educational technology innovator with more than 17 years of experience working with education data. He founded eScholar in 1997 with a vision of improving educational outcomes through data use. Since then, he’s worked closely with school districts, regional service centers, and state education agencies to implement a wide range of school technologies including data warehouses, unique identifiers, data dashboards, and personalized goal setting solutions.

eScholar’s work began with implementing a single data warehouse in Western New York and now serves more than 20 million students across the United States. The implementation of eScholar’s award-winning solutions has transformed how educators collect and use data.

With over 10,000 members, which include educators, parents, school board members and private sector partners, the NYSCATE Annual Conference attracts hundreds of attendees. The theme of this year’s conference is “TransformED: Rethink. Reimagine. Recreate.” For his keynote, Bay will reflect on how education has transformed in the last few decades and offer insight as to what the future holds. In particular, he will explain how smart data use can help each student achieve their individual goals and receive a personalized education. During the week prior to NYSCATE 2014, Bay will be taking additional topic suggestions through Twitter and the eScholar blog.

“We are looking forward to the keynote address by Shawn Bay,” said Amy Perry-DelCorvo, CEO and Executive Director of NYSCATE. “His address comes at the height of our events – including the Maker Faire, StartUp Weekend, and the conference – and is highly anticipated.”

eScholar will be also hosting an exhibit booth at NYSCATE 2014 to demonstrate their award-winning eScholar myTrack® solution. eScholar myTrack enables parents, students, teachers and administrators to collaborate and use data effectively. Features include early warning indicators, the ability to analyze assessment items, and interactive goal planning. The eScholar team will be at the booth 522 doing demonstrations of the solution throughout the day.
