veta.orgVirginia Educational Technology Alliance (VETA)

The Virginia Educational Technology Alliance (VETA) is a coalition of Virginia teacher education programs that includes Virginia Tech, Old Dominion University, George Mason University, the College of William and Mary, Virginia Commonwealth University, James Madison University, and the University of Virginia.

The goal of the Alliance is to share resources, expertise and research to collaboratively support the efforts of Virginia's educational institutions in fully integrating computers and other learning technologies in the teaching and learning process. A particular goal of the alliance is to encourage and support collaborative preservice and inservice technology preparation efforts.

The Center has developed an important collaborative relationship with VCDH. Led by Executive Director Ed Ayers and Director Will Thomas, The Digital History Center is perhaps best known for the award-winning multimedia project, The Valley of the Shadow: Two American Communities in the Civil War, which has been cited by the National Endowment for the Humanities as an example of the "best of the Humanities on the web." The Center will help create the teaching materials necessary for use of this valuable resource in the secondary, middle, and elementary schools. Related projects are being planned as well.

International Leadership for Educational Technology (ILET)

aims to build an international learning community with a collection of expertise and resources pooled by six leading universities and four supporting partners in the USA and Europe to prepare teacher educators for the 21st networked world. The project will enable a multi-disciplinary consortium to educate a new cadre of leaders with experience in today's global context, while taking care to include both sides of the digital divide and sponsorship will be sought to support students' needs.

National Council of Social Studies (NCSS)

The Center serves as the official site for evaluation of all educational software submitted to NCSS for review. These reviews appear in NCSS's flagship journal, Social Education. In July 1998 the Center and the National Council of Social Studies jointly hosted a workshop, Technology in the Social Studies Classroom, for national social studies leaders in technology integration.

EDC Consortium for Technology in the Preparation of Teachers

Center faculty participated in the establishment of a national Consortium for Technology in the Preparation of Teachers (sponsored by the EDC Center for Children and Technology with external grant support).

ISTE  International Society for Technology in Education

Each year the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and the Curry Center jointly sponsor a technology leadership workshop at the National Education Computing Conference (NECC).

  Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE)

The Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education is an international association of individual teacher educators, and affiliated organizations of teacher educators in all disciplines, who are interested in the creation and dissemination of knowledge about the use of information technology in teacher education and faculty/staff development. The Society seeks to promote research, scholarship, collaboration, exchange, and support among its membership, and to actively foster the development of new national organizations where a need emerges. SITE is the only organization that has as its sole focus the integration of instructional technologies into teacher education programs.
