Nebraska ESUs

Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT)

Our mission is to connect educators with resources, best practices, and emerging technologies to transform teaching and learning.

Background: During the 2015-16 and 2016-17 year, memberships for the Nebraska Educational Service Units (ESU) affiliate groups - Technology Affiliate Group (TAG), Instructional Materials (IMat), and Distance Education Council (DEC) - began dialogue to combine the efforts within the three groups based upon the fact that 46% of the membership serve in multiple roles. Formalized discussion began during January of 2016; and because of the membership’s efforts the concept of a newly formed affiliate, Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) evolved. The initial meeting regarding the development of the TLT began with a purpose, which is to enhance communication through efficient and effective planning, development and implementation while maintaining autonomy of each affiliate. The development and implementation of the TLT governance and structure continued throughout the 2016-17 year with full implementation beginning 2017-18.
