Three Rivers Educational Technology Conference (TRETC) is an exciting professional development opportunity to advance the integration of educational technology for teachers, K-12 administrators, industry experts, and higher education decision-makers in the Pittsburgh region.

2022 TRETC Theme: Making Connections

Educational technology has proven to allow for strong connections between students, educators, families, and communities. This has never been truer than over the past school year. Showcasing how technology can enhance learning environments by pushing boundaries, integrating resources, enabling inclusiveness, and forming strong bonds that touch each part of a student’s life is the focus of this year’s TRETC.

In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr, Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?”

TRETC 2022 will be delivered both in-person (at a location TBA soon!) and live-streamed via Zoom.
