A Message from the President of PAECT
There are so many challenges facing educators now that we must work together to find solutions. PAECT was founded on that very thought. By working together with other educators who understand the importance of technology and its role in learning, we can improve the quality of education across all Pennsylvania and beyond. Thank you for all that you do to inspire, ignite and instill a love of learning for your students.
Technology can amplify learning for students. Educators must employ best practices in the use of technology. PAECT and our members are the leaders in this area. Our core values of Connect, Develop Lead and Advocate have never been so important. We can change the landscape of education and serve as an inspiration for all educators who are supporting learning through the use of technology. Education is a pathway to prosperity and we have an obligation as educators to enable students to open the doors to their future.
I must also provide a huge thank you to all of the PAECT Board members and committee chairs who continue to donate their time as they balance work, family and a passion for educational technology. I would ask you to seek out Board members and offer thanks for their commitment to keeping the organization on the right track and putting in countless hours to engage our membership. All across the Commonwealth and beyond our regional directors are hosting regional meetups and strengthening relationships among our members. KTI continues to be a premier experience and has returned to an in person event. My challenge to you is to spread the word about our community and encourage others to become members at www.paect.org/join_renew. We are working to make this organization transparent to members and offer opportunities to work on the work.
Ben Smith, PAECT President
