The major activities of the Philippine Society of IT Educators - Region XI are the holding of the Mindanao Conference for IT Educators (MCITE), Mindanao Conference for IT Students (MCITS) and the Mindanaowide IT Olympiad.

These yearly activities are implemented in collaboration with the Council of Deans in IT Education XI (CDITE XI) and the Commission on Higher Education XI (CHED XI).   Specifically, MCITE and MCITS are aimed to provide both the Mindanao-based IT educators and IT students the opportunity to present their research works, projects and other intellectual works. 

MCITE was implemented because it was noticed that only few from Mindanao could attend the conferences held in Luzon and Visayas. With this observation, PSITE XI and CDITE XI initiated and organized the MCITE and MCITS in 2004 to provide the educators and students a venue to update themselves on the trends and development in IT as well as to showcase their research and other academic works.  The IT Olympiad was also implemented to provide the IT students the opportunity to interact with their fellow IT students through academic competitions such as programming, IT quiz and other relevant activities.
