We’re exploring education from every angle.

What’s your point of view?

40+ Years of
Educational Inspiration

Since 1980, TCEA has worked to connect educators with the latest pedagogical ideas, teaching techniques, and tech tools — and with each other. Our annual Convention & Exposition showcases the most influential thinkers and leaders in education, along with the biggest names in the ed tech business, all sharing a wealth of knowledge with our attendees.

The Very Best in
Professional Learning

Each year, we work to give educators access to the best in professional development and network-building. We don’t just attract some of the biggest names in education and technology, we also bring together a diverse community of administrators, educators, librarians, and tech professionals. Together, we share ideas, tips, and build your ability to create lasting learning, at the event and beyond.

New Perspectives in 2021

In 2021, we’re working to ensure a memorable event full of bright new ideas, refreshed favorites, and perspectives from across the educational spectrum. Get to know an array of engaging speakers from all walks of life and motivated educators, all sharing fresh ideas for the future of teaching and learning.

This year, we are partnering with the Illinois Digital Educators Alliance (IDEA) to provide expanded virtual learning opportunities and new ways for educators to grow their professional learning networks this February.

By working together on programming and events, these grassroots professional organizations provide registrants to either event with more ways to earn professional learning hours and connect with like-minded, passionate educators — wherever they are. This innovative hybrid Convention offers three weeks of programming from two trusted networks — TCEA and IDEA. Live sessions begin February 1–6, 2021, and will be available on-demand for 30 days after the event. Additional programming will culminate with more live events and keynotes later in the month. Attendees can benefit from the expertise and powerful networks of both these organizations worry-free, and at their own pace. In addition, we are excited to offer attendees the opportunity to visit two virtual exposition halls during the month.

More information about this exciting partnership will be available soon. The full press release announcing this team-up can be found here.
