Project THREAD: Technology Helping Restructure Educational Access and Delivery.
Strudler, Neal; Heflich, David; Anderson, Don
This paper describes Project THREAD (Technology: Helping Restructure Educational Access and Delivery), an initiative funded by the U.S. Office of Education through its Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology grant program. The project's overarching goal is to build the capacity of individuals and institutional structures to support the infusion of technology throughout the UNLV's (University of Nevada, Las Vegas's) teacher preparation program. This will be done through: (1) a series of inservice workshops for university faculty, administrators, field supervisors and mentor teachers; (2) one-on-one follow-up support provided by project staff and advanced undergraduate students; (3) a mini-grant program in collaboration with the UNLV's Teaching and Learning Center to support the development of technology-based modules for teacher education courses; and (4) expanded opportunities for students to apply technology in their courses and field experiences. Overall, Project THREAD seeks to implement a systematic planning model and move from "pockets" of technology integration toward widespread infusion throughout UNLV's teacher preparation program.
