Virginia Society for Technology in Education


Support VSTE

High performing workplaces increasingly require a workforce with 21st century skills. By working with educators to facilitate the integration of technology, the Virginia Society for Technology in Education (VSTE) helps further the development of these crucial 21st century skills, thus helping prepare the workforce of the future. As we enter an unprecedented era of globalization, our mission is more critical than ever.

Since 1986 VSTE has served the entire community of technology educators. Our members represent key decision makers including teachers, administrators, students, parents, businesses leaders, and others who are interested in promoting technology’s role in educating the workforce of the 21st century.

VSTE provides the only statewide conference devoted to all aspects of technology in education. Our mission continues year-round through electronic publications, partnerships, professional learning communities, online professional development, advocacy activities at the state and federal level, and active participation in several other national and state conferences.

Remember, Virginia is recognized nationally for innovative and creative solutions bringing effective technology into the classroom. We are the first and only state to adopt the Instructional Technology Resource Teacher (ITRT) model in all our classrooms, statewide.
