MassCUE’s 35th Anniversary Year

The idea for Massachusetts Association of Computer-Using Educators (MassCUE) began to germinate in 1982 with a few like-minded individuals. The group, led by Len Huber, saw the need for a state organization to try to pull together all computer-using educators to share their newfound joys and troubles.*

The newly formed organization started as a private foundation for the purpose of “creating, sharing and supporting visions of teaching and learning that focus on uses of technology which enhance the educational environment.” In 1988 MassCUE became a 501 (c)3 and has not stopped growing.

We will celebrate our growth and founding members at our fall conference at Gillette Stadium on October 25, 2017 in several ways. First, we have funded and awarded 5 anniversary scholarships to teachers who have never attended our conference as well as several of our exhibitors will be sponsoring additional scholarships.

Secondly, we will recognize some of our MassCUE founding members as well as former board members before our keynote. This group will be honored during a reception hosted by Discovery Education after the conference that evening. We hope you will join us as we honor those whose groundbreaking work gave us the foundation for a successful organization. You can also help us by contributing a trivia question about MassCUE!
