VSTE is the premier professional development and advocacy organization for educators in Virginia. The Virginia Society for Technology in Education (VSTE) was founded in 1986 as the Virginia Educational Computing Association and is Virginia’s affiliate of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).
VSTE’s mission is to promote excellence in education through professional development endeavors supporting the integration of existing and emerging technologies.
Our vision is to be an influence in technological innovation in education and be recognized as an agent of change across the Commonwealth.
Serving the entire community of technology-using educators, membership is complimentary and includes pre-service education students, teachers, principals, specialists, instructional technology resource teachers (ITRTs), superintendents, university faculty, parents, businesses, and others who are interested in promoting technology’s role in education. From pre-service to in-service and continuing through post-service, Society membership is open to the contributions and involvement of educators and those supporting educational technology.
The Society is managed by a Board of Directors representing the various endeavors and constituents of the Society. Membership in the Society is complimentary for all interested persons, and members benefit from our advocacy efforts, free professional development opportunities, and and premier access to VSTE’s activities and information.
