A passionate group of educators evolves with technology
As computers changed, so did the organization. Until 1976 when Apple was founded, computers were large and very expensive to own. However, the game was changed when the company introduced personal computers that were affordable and accessible.
By 1986, the purposes and mission of the organization shifted and grew as did the advancements in technology. The name was officially changed to NYSCATE. More and more members began to ask: How can computers help educators? How do we train teachers to use new technology to their advantage? What does the future hold for technology in education?
