On September 28-29, 2017, national leaders from educational associations, editors of educational technology journals, directors of nonprofit foundations, federal policy makers, and corporate representatives gathered in Washington, DC, for the National Technology Leadership Summit (NTLS). The event was hosted by the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE). NTLS provides an annual opportunity to facilitate dialog between educational technology and teacher educator associations. CITE Journal is a tangible outcome of this dialog representing five teacher educator associations (English, math, science and social studies – listed on the opening page of the CITE Journal) and educational technology. As Debra Sprague put it in a 2004 editorial, such dialog is important so that as educational technology leaders we are not talking to ourselves. Many of the outcomes over the years have been communicated in a series of editorials published in CITE Journal (see Bull, Spector, Persichitte, & Meier, 2017)
