TCEA: Learning Without Limits
What is TCEA?
TCEA is a nonprofit association that’s been around since 1980. We’ve got a vision of “Learning without Limits.” And we realize this vision through our mission of “advancing teaching and learning through the use of technology.”
But our focus isn’t on the technology itself. It’s on supporting the teaching, leading, and learning happening through and with technology– and on how educational technology can make learning more equitable, engaging, and meaningful for all learners.
What We Do
TCEA has more than 80,000 members worldwide, and we support educators in Texas and around the world in breaking down barriers to learning. How? With a robust online community, valuable professional learning, free resources, and our advocacy efforts.
Through online courses, in-person and virtual conferences, summer camps, on-site workshops, weekly 30-minute Lunch and Learn webinars, our TechNotes blog, the TCEA Convention & Exposition, and more, TCEA is a leader in educational technology and a force behind joining technology and researched-based pedagogy.
TCEA is dedicated to advancing teaching and learning through the use of technology.
Learning without Limits
A TCEA membership is available for free with the purchase of any course or event registration. Why? Because we want every educator to be a member of TCEA. So once you learn with us, you can enjoy the benefits of our membership– forever– because your membership will auto-renew for free each year.
TCEA is dedicated to advancing teaching and learning through the use of technology. To accomplish that goal, we follow the organization’s Strategic Long-Range Plan.
