TETA Visionary Award
The TETA Visionary Award, formerly known as the Director's Award, is a prestigious recognition presented by TETA to honor an individual who has made significant contributions to instructional technology that have had a broad and positive impact across the entire state. Unlike some other awards, the recipient of the TETA Visionary Award does not have to be a TETA member. Instead, the focus is on their exceptional efforts in promoting and implementing technology in education, irrespective of their affiliation with the organization.
This award is granted to an individual who has gone above and beyond in their support for and implementation of technology in education. It serves as a tribute to their visionary leadership and their influence on the advancement of instructional technology within the state.
The TETA Visionary Award acknowledges the critical role played by individuals who have made a statewide impact in the field of educational technology and highlights their dedication to enhancing the learning experiences of students and educators through the effective use of technology.
Making it Happen
The ISTE Making It Happen Award honors outstanding educators and leaders who demonstrate extraordinary commitment, leadership, courage and persistence in improving digital learning opportunities for students. Since its inception in 1995, more than 800 educators from around the world have received the award.
The ability of the TETA Board of Directors to bestow memberships on individuals or organizations is a way for the board to extend honorary or special memberships to deserving recipients. This practice allows the board to recognize and show appreciation for individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions to the field of technology education and training or have demonstrated a strong commitment to the goals and mission of TETA.
Honorary or bestowed memberships are often granted as a form of recognition and appreciation for the recipient's support, contributions, or achievements in a particular field or organization. These memberships may come with certain privileges or benefits, depending on the policies and bylaws of TETA.
Overall, the ability to bestow memberships is a way for TETA to acknowledge and engage with individuals or organizations that have made a positive impact on the association and its objectives, fostering a sense of community and collaboration within the technology education and training community.
