About TAM

Technology and Media Division (TAM) is the official division of the Council for Exceptional Children that works to promote the availability and effective use of technology and media for individuals with exceptional learning needs. Anyone who uses technology as one of the options to improve outcomes for children and adults with disabilities is welcome to join TAM. Tam members work in classrooms, centers, clinics, homes, and universities. They include families, advocates, teachers, teacher educators, researchers, and policy makers.

TAM is currently undergoing a reorganization that has resulted in exciting new changes to better serve our membership. The Journal of Special Education Technology (JSET) is now published by SAGE. Dr. Joseph Boyle and Dr. Michael Kennedy are new JSET editors. We also have a new committee structure with board members who are working tirelessly on the reorganization. Plans are underway to revive some of the most popular TAM publications in digital formats, and to continue our advocacy initiatives to ensure accessible instruction for all across grade levels and content areas. We are laying the groundwork to provide more useful and timely information, including professional development options, to multiple audiences through social media. What else would you like to see us do this year?  We hope to hear from you! Contact Us
