The Technology Scholarship Program for Alabama Teachers at Jacksonville State University.
King, Franklin L.; And Others
The Alabama Commission on Higher Education (ACHE) recently established the "Technology Scholarship Program for Alabama Teachers" (TSPAT). Jacksonville State University (JSU) is one of the state institutions participating in the program, which was funded by Act 93-636 of the Alabama Legislature. The program addresses technological literacy, multimedia computer-based instructional technologies (both current and emerging), popular instructional software, distance learning, and communication "superhighways." The targeted audience includes graduate level, employed teachers from Alabama public schools who are currently enrolled in a participating institution of higher education. Emphasis is on equipping teachers with diverse technologies that can be used effectively to stimulate creative thought in children. TSPAT has been in effect since 1994, and early indications have been favorable. This article familiarizes other educators with this unique teacher education program, and suggests ways to benefit the larger academic community and the public schools in particular. The article is divided according to: (a) teacher selection criteria, (b) specialized technology courses, (c) implications for the academic community, and (d) future goals. (Author)
