New Jersey Department of Education

The Office of Innovation is charged with advancing and supporting the implementation of the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS) with a specific focus on the transdisciplinary areas of:

  • Computer Science.
  • STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics).
  • Climate Awareness.
  • Educational Technology.

Additionally, the Office of Innovation oversees the administration of grant opportunities that empower schools to create new academic experiences for students and engages in research and development work to identify innovative instructional practices that incorporate cutting-edge educational technologies. These efforts support New Jersey’s educators in delivering innovative, relevant, and engaging instruction aligned to the NJSLS through experiential learning, or "learning by doing," and prepare the next generation of leaders to design innovative, sustainable, and scalable solutions to challenges of the present and the future.
