At its annual conference, the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) brings together campus- and district-level educators to explore the role of technology in achieving best practices in teaching and learning.

This year’s conference will feature more than 900 industry expert and peer-led presentations on technology integration across all curricula areas for pre-K through higher education.

Do you support students with print disabilities, such as learning or physical disabilities or visual impairments? Will you be attending TCEA?

The Accessible Books for Texas (ABT) team will be on hand in Booth #1856 to demonstrate how Bookshare can help these students succeed in reading, both in school and beyond.
