ITEC (Iowa Technology and Education Connection) promotes the use of technology in education by demonstrating to its members, other educators, and the public, developments in educational technology and how its appropriate use supports teaching and learning.
ITEC Statement of Support for Iowa's AEA's
As an organization, ITEC has long valued the partnerships with our AEAs and recognize the vital role they play in our communities.
ITEC’s mission is to engage, equip, and empower Iowa educational stakeholders on their journey to transform the learning experience for all learners across the state. We recognize the value of the partnerships with the AEAs to provide a wide range of support for our ITEC members including (but not limited to) instructional support, infrastructure needs, professional learning and digital instructional design that supports districts, schools and educators in providing high quality instruction.
We urge the legislature to carefully consider the ramifications of moving forward with all proposals within HSB 542/SSB 3073 and engage in open dialogue with stakeholders like ITEC to ensure any changes made support, rather than hinder, our shared goal of a strong education system for all Iowa students.
