Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal) is an online, peer-reviewed journal, established and sponsored jointly by five professional associations (AMTE, ASTE, NCSS-CUFA, CEE, and SITE). Each professional association has sole responsibility for editorial review of articles in its discipline. The CITE Journal is published quarterly, and each edition includes articles related to the cross-section of teacher education and technology integration. A wide range of formats and approaches to scholarship are accepted, including qualitative research, quantitative studies, conceptual and theoretical pieces, case studies, and professional practice papers. Because of its online format, CITE Journal encourages articles that take advantage of the capabilities of the medium. Articles may include digital video and audio, color images, animation, and applets, as well as links to external resources.
The CITE 2016 December issue features an article Assessing Elementary Prospective Teachers’ Mathematical Explanations After Engagement in Online Mentoring Modules by Jennifer Wall, Northwest Missouri State University; Sarah Selmer, West Virginia University; & Amy Bingham Brown, Utah State University.
The Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education is an international association of individual teacher educators and affiliated organizations of teacher educators in all disciplines who are interested in the creation and dissemination of knowledge about the use of information technology in teacher education and faculty/staff development.
The Society seeks to promote research, scholarship, collaboration, exchange, and support among its membership, and to actively foster the development of new national organizations where a need emerges. SITE is the only organization that has as its sole focus the integration of instructional technologies into teacher education programs.
The Association (founded in 1981) is an international, educational and professional not-for-profit umbrella organization dedicated to the advancement of the knowledge, theory, and quality of learning and teaching at all levels with information technology. This purpose of AACE is accomplished through the encouragement of scholarly inquiry related to information technology in education and the dissemination of research results and their applications through:
- Societies & Chapters (including SITE)
- Inter-Organizational Projects
