A partnership between:
What is the TPEA?
In order to strengthen the voice of professional experts in advising on the national computing strategy, ITTE and MirandaNet, the two leading education research bodies in the UK and internationally, will join together under the new name of the Technology, Pedagogy and Education Association. This learned community, launched in 2019, aims to influence policy and practice in education technology. The TPEA moniker was chosen to align with ITTE’s well established international journal of the same name.
We publish widely in professional journals, newsletters and in the education press and write most of the standard course books used in teacher education published by Routledge.
The partnership between ITTE and MirandaNet will give TPEA 1,500 international members representing a wide range of education technology (EdTech) experts including university and college lecturers, advisory services and independent consultants, school leaders, classroom teachers, researchers and edtech companies who all share an interest in improving learning through the application of digital technology in teaching and through the effective teaching of Computing as a curriculum subject.
In our new venture, we will be running three Research Safaris at BETT20, on 22nd, 23th and 24th in which educators will be invited to attend a panel in the Staff Room with academics, educators and key company representatives about research findings.
We will then lead tours to visit the relevant stands to look at the products or services. TPEA will follow up with a report about the current state of edtech research. We will be canvassing this opportunity widely.
