TCEA is dedicated to advancing teaching and learning through the use of technology.
What We Do
TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association) is a global, nonprofit, member-based organization. We support the use of technology in education. Founded in 1980, TCEA has been playing a vital role in increasing technology funding and access for PreK-16 schools for 38 years. Our 13,000-member association is led by a grassroots board of directors—all professional educators. TCEA’s resources support educators in the field who are enhancing curriculum with digital tools.
Convention, Conferences, and Events
TCEA is best known for its exceptional conferences and events. These include our annual TCEA Convention & Exposition, our summer Elementary Technology Conference, and our specialized System Administrator and Technical Support conference. A number of other academies, workshops, and certification courses are offered throughout the year. Our members have a broad array of in-person learning opportunities to choose from.
In addition to learning events, TCEA provides members with cutting-edge information. We offer online professional development, publications, and resources through collaborations with businesses and institutions of higher learning. TCEA is affiliated with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). This lets us provide a two-way channel of information throughout the world.
