Leading, Inspiring and Transforming Education through Technology

NJECC's mission is to create opportunities for the sharing of ideas, collaboration, networking, and professional development that support New Jersey educators in creating innovative and transformative learning environments using technology.

NJECC powers innovation and transformation in education through technology by facilitating high-level collaboration and networking opportunities, offering engaging professional learning, an annual statewide conference, student learning contests, and inspiring monthly member and special interest group meetings.  As a cooperative organization, NJECC offers its member districts opportunities for group buying discounts on educational technology products and services through our valued vendor partners.

NJECC  is a 37-year-old not-for-profit organization with over 100 member K-12 school districts throughout New Jersey and  is directed by a board of trustees and advised by an advisory board made up of practicing K-12 educators from its member districts.

NJECC is the New Jersey COSN and ISTE affiliate and hosts the annual New Jersey Educational Technology Conference.
