TCEA is the largest state organization devoted to the use of technology in education. The event was founded in 1980 and the organization has been very active since then supporting instructional technology. The primary focus of the organization is on integrating technology into the K-12 environment and providing members with state-of-the-art information through conventions, workshops, newsletters, the internet and collaborations with higher education and businesses. TCEA is also affiliated with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) which provides a two-way channel of information throughout the world.
Technology in the classroom has come a long way over the years. Schools are implementing tablets and laptops into classrooms more and more, along with things like projectors and smartboards, in attempts to make learning more interactive and accessible to the everyday student. Technology in the classroom is impressive, to say the least, and conventions like TCEA 2015 are at the forefront in making this technology better and better.
