On February 15, 1996, the Clinton-Gore Administration announced the Technology Literacy Challenge, envisioning a 21st century where all students benefit from the use of educational technology. At the heart of this challenge are four goals that help to define the task at hand: All teachers in the nation will have the training and support they need to help students learn using computers and the information superhighway; All teachers and students will have modern multimedia computers in their classrooms; Every classroom will be connected to the information superhighway; and Effective software and on-line learning resources will be an integral part of every school's curriculum. All states have created plans to integrate the use of technology to help students learn challenging content and to ensure that all children are literate by the dawn of the 21st century. This document presents reports for each state and protectorate of the United States that show that state's progress toward the four goals. Each report also tracks educational technology funding for years 1995 through 2000, and includes annual totals, for each of these programs: Technology Innovation Challenge Grants; Technology Literacy Challenge Fund; Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers To Use Technology; Community Technology Centers; Learning Anytime Anywhere Partnerships; Assistive Technology; Migrant Education; and E-Rate.
