TCEA’s Mission

TCEA is dedicated to the improvement of teaching and learning through the use of computers and technology.

More About TCEA

TCEA (Texas Computer Education Association) is a member-based organization supporting 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 35 years. Our 16,000-member association is led by a grass-roots board of directors, all of whom are professional educators, and TCEA’s offerings all 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, including TCEA’s Annual Convention & Exposition, the Tots and Technology summer conference for elementary educators, and the specialized System Administrator and Technical Support conference. A number of other academies, workshops, and certification courses are offered throughout the year, so members have a broad array of in-person opportunities to choose from.

Member Support

In addition to learning events, TCEA provides members with state-of-the-art information via online professional development, a variety of publications, the Internet, and collaborations with higher education and business. TCEA is affiliated with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), which provides a two-way channel of information throughout the world.


TCEA is divided into twenty areas across Texas so that the needs of our members can be more easily met. These twenty areas are defined by the Regional Education Service Centers; each has an elected Area Director who both manages area events and represents the area on the board of directors.

Our BHAG (Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal)
