Westside Educator Named President of Nebraska Educational Technology Association
Dr. Matt Lee, Westside’s Coordinator of Technology Integration and Digital Content, has been elected President of the Nebraska Educational Technology Association.
NETA is a grassroots organization open to everyone interested in sharing information about using technology in the educational process. NETA has more than 4,300 members from a four state region.
Dr. Lee, an Apple Distinguished Educator, spent the last year as President-Elect, responsible for selecting, organizing and scheduling an estimated 190 breakout sessions at the 2017 NETA Spring Conference. The event, attended by approximately 2,600 educators, was widely described as a huge success.
“We have two goals we are focusing on,” said Dr. Lee. “Demonstrating continual growth in quality, attendance and offerings at our conferences, and expanding learning opportunities for educators beyond the conference.”
NETA’S goals are described as follows: to promote and provide quality training for Nebraska educators; to actively promote equitable experiences in educational technology across Nebraska; to broaden NETA’s support base; to support research and development of educational technology; to provide appropriate technology services and product awareness to the educational community in Nebraska.
As President, Dr. Lee will now preside over all meetings and statewide NETA events, publish newsletters and communication, and oversee outreach activities.
