The Tasmanian Society for Information Technology in Education (TASITE) is a cross-sectoral association for teachers and support staff using information and communications technologies across all education levels. Membership ranges in disciplines across the curriculum, from early childhood to the tertiary sector, and includes specialist IT and vocational teachers in compulsory years of schooling, tertiary teachers, academics and researchers, teacher librarians, technicians, technical/teacher aides and other support personnel. TASITE was established in 1991 (then known as CESIGT) from the amalgamation of long standing regional groups. The objectives are to promote knowledge of the applications of information technology in teaching and learning and to play a role in teachers’ professional development.
TASITE organises workshops, talks by guest speakers and site visits to educational, scientific and cultural organisations supporting education. The association promotes professional communication through an online discussion list, a monthly newsletter, a contact database of interested members’ skills and membership of state, national and international associations. TASITE was set up as a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the Australian Computer Society (ACS) and the Tasmanian member of the Australian Council for Computers in Education (ACCE), the umbrella body for state groups and national representative at international forums.
It is also a member of Network of Educational Associations Tasmania (NEAT) and the International Society for Technology Education (ISTE).
