Cotten, Catherine Perry
The Southeast Consortium for Advanced Network Technologies Education (SCANTE) is a partnership between two-year colleges, four-year colleges and universities, middle/secondary schools, and the business community in Mississippi and elsewhere. SCANTE goals include: (1) to identify and evaluate trends, applications, innovations, and curricula in the emerging network technologies; (2) to develop articulation of the two-year degree in network technology with a four-year degree program; (3) to disseminate to educators and their students emerging network technology trends, applications, innovations, and curricula; (4) to promote interest by secondary and postsecondary students in computer network technology, computer servicing technology, and telecommunications technology careers as well as the mathematics and science courses necessary for success in these careers; (5) to promote competency of secondary/postsecondary faculty who teach, implement, or administer curricula in emerging technologies; (6) to establish and facilitate an infrastructure to provide student work-based learning opportunities in emerging network technologies; and (7) to establish and facilitate an infrastructure to build a network of education, government and business entities that will support the development of quality programs to educate (and re-educate) the information technology workforce. Funding from the National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Program (ATE) and others has facilitated movement toward these goals. Slide presentation is appended. (PGS)
