In just a few weeks, the eScholar team will be heading to Saratoga Springs for the annual DATAG Summer Conference, July 12-14. This year, a few members of our leadership will attend: John Pozzuto, Andrea Hartman, Nick Chouloute, and Gary Evans. We’re excited to be presenting and providing demonstrations of the new NYSSIS system with folks from the NY State Education Department (SED). In addition to our sessions, there are lots of engaging and thought-provoking sessions that cover best practices, successful implementations, and new research. If you’re on the fence about attending DATAG, here are a few reasons to attend.
- Knowledge Sharing and Networking: The DATAG Summer Data Conference serves as a hub for thought leaders, experts, and practitioners in New York State passionate about data analysis and its applications. It’s always provided a great forum to collaborate and gain valuable insights and strategies to enhance your organization’s data-driven decision-making processes.
- Practical Skills Development: From Google Sheets to the latest reporting tools on the market, one of the key highlights of DATAG is the emphasis on practical skills development. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced data analyst, there are always wide array of workshops and hands-on sessions.
- Stay Ahead of the Curve: In a rapidly evolving digital landscape, staying ahead of the curve is essential for sustained growth and success. Attending the DATAG allows you to stay up to date with the latest trends, developments, and emerging technologies in the realm of education data analysis.
- Visit Beautiful Saratoga Springs! The DATAG Summer Conference is held in Saratoga Springs, which is beautiful in the summer. After the eScholar reception, head out to Broadway, and visit the small shops and enjoy local flavors. You can also stay the weekend and try to catch Dave Matthews Band at SPAC, the iconic performing arts center.
