SETDA’s annual Emerging Technologies Forum (ET Forum) provides a venue for SETDA’s state members and the private sector to engage in meaningful dialogue. Companies showcase their products and services and the SETDA members, representing the state departments of education, highlight their major initiatives and priorities. The ET Forum is attended by an average of 75 state members representing the educational technology leadership from no fewer than 42 states, as well as the corporate community represented by SETDA’s annual private sector partners and ET Forum event sponsors.
