Highlights from the 2014 NAA Convention | New York City
We had a blast at the 2014 convention blast in New York City! Over 2,200 attendees from across the country gathered to learn, network, and share.

The convention kicked off with special performances by Broadway stars. Google’s Jaime Casap gave a keynote presentation on the power and potential of the web, technology, and Google tools in education.

There was an abundance of learning and sharing with over 150 engaging workshop sessions, 20 poster presentations, and 10 Ignite sessions. We explored NYC with over 15 site visits to some of New York City’s top cultural landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty, the Met, and The Electric Company (among many others!).
