CalTAC was formed in 2005 as a means for bringing real world classroom
experience - the wisdom of practice - to policy makers and others whose decisions affect the quality
of science and math education in California schools. Made up of a carefully selected group of award
winning, highly accomplished teachers from across the state, CalTAC has been working to provide
greater opportunities for students to engage in the STEM disciplines as well as to improve their
academic performance. Members also serve as mentors, Master Teachers and professional development
providers, evidence of their strong commitment to strengthening the teaching profession.
Cal TAC-sponsored workshops, symposia, and white papers are designed to enable participants to explore
various aspects of digital teaching and
learning in three important ways:
Provide opportunities for candid discussion of the ways in
which to prepare the teacher workforce to use digital tools effectively to support students'
Connect innovators to enable the sharing and advancement of new ideas; and
Engage members of the policy community, early on, to strengthen the connection between policy,
research, and practice.
