Leveraging Title I & Title IID: Maximizing the Impact of Technology in Education--A Resource Guide Identifying Technology Tools for Schools
Fox, Christine; Jones, Rachel
State Educational Technology Directors Association
The State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) and the National Association of State Title I Directors (NASTID) drafted this paper to spark local discussions on the coordinated uses of funds to implement technology in the classroom. State and local Title I and Title IID directors can work together to ensure that these ideas are systemically implemented and in line with the rules and requirements of each state and grant program. Careful planning and considerations are critical in determining each school's needs and best selection and uses of technology to improve student achievement. Schools should assess their technology needs and implement programs that make substantial progress in meeting state and local goals. School leaders who manage Title IA and Title IID funds need to collaborate and make important decisions about the use of the funds. They should consider what makes up a 21st century classroom, library and school. Providing students with the necessary advanced technologies, educational technology programs and practices, and well-trained teachers will enable schools to use innovative teaching strategies designed to engage students and promote critical thinking, problem solving, creativity and college and career readiness skills.
