TCEA 2013: Texas' Ed-Tech Conference Is Worth Messing With

The value of TCEA's vibrant, collaborative community is more apparent than ever.

Now in its 33rd year, the Texas Computer Education Association helps its more than 12,000 members integrate technology into the pre-K–12 environment. TCEA is divided into 20 areas, defined by the state’s Regional Education Service Centers, to meet member needs more effectively.

In addition to the annual state convention and exposition, members are invited to participate in free and discounted professional development opportunities, special interest groups, local events, and TCEA’s social networks. Members also receive a quarterly magazine and a bimonthly digital newsletter.

Curious just how far the conference has extended its reach beyond the Lone Star state's borders? Try Canada. The TCEA tweeted this factoid about this year's attendees.

Other attendees raved about the insightful sessions and thought-provking lessons learned.
