Mission & What We Do

Our mission is to lead the transformation of teaching and learning through technology.

NYSCATE (The New York State Association for Computers and Technologies in Education), is a non-profit, professional organization representing more than 25,000 technology using educators and administrators in New York State. NYSCATE is an affiliate of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), and cooperates with such partners as the New York State Education Department, state and national educational organizations, private sector corporations, and publishers to further the use of technology in our schools. NYSCATE is involved in helping define statewide policy regarding the use of technologies in education.

NYSCATE has drawn strength and support from its talented and diverse membership since 1965. With a current membership of over 25,000 members, all regions of the state are represented in our community teachers, administrators, school board members, parents, consultants and the business community.


NYSCATE members are our most valued asset. Primarily K-12 educators and administrators, as well as higher education, private, parochial and charter school personnel welcome.


ISTE, COSN and SETDA are the three National organizations that NYSCATE aligns with.
