Benefits & How To Join METC

As the EdTech program of EducationPlus, the Midwest Education Technology Community (METC) is an educational technology program and premier affiliate of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). As your regional affiliate, METC is dedicated to assisting the education community through support, promotion, and leadership in the effective use of educational technology.

Our purpose is to provide a forum for collaboration on issues regarding educational technology and a means for members to share best practices. We provide ongoing professional learning opportunities like workshops, academies, onsite training, blended learning, regional meet-ups and playdates, as well as an annual conference for educators across the Midwest.

With the support of our regional, national and international partners, we connect innovative learners through advocacy of equity and effective use of technology for all students. The METC allows anyone in education to join our collaborative community. Learn more at
