I am a member of TCEA. The organization hosts a myriad of conferences throughout the year, with the most cumulative being their February conference - a 5 day professional development marathon that hosted hundreds of sessions this year from VR to Code.org. It is an excellent organization with special interest groups- SIGs- that provide a more intimate collaboration amongst teachers interested in a particular element of technology education, such as robotics. There is an annual fee for membership, but it is WELL worth it! I’ll be hosting 2 sessions at the Frisco conference this July called Tots and Technology, catered towards lower elementary and Early Childhood teachers.
