The Tennessee Educational Technology Association was formed in 1993 by educators who saw a need for a focus on educational technology from the three grand divisions of East, Middle, and West Tennessee. TETA created Chapters in those regions, ETETA (East), MTETA (Middle), & WTETA (West) to build the statewide organization. TETA strives to provide an environment in which educational technology professionals can share and exchange ideas, materials, and procedures while promoting professional standards in the field of educational technology and communicating current research relating to educational technology. TETA became a CoSN State Chapter in 2012.
