Show Us the Money! Planning and Preparation Can Help You Get Ed Tech Stimulus Funding
Brock, Davis H.
Learning & Leading with Technology, v37 n1 p22-25 Aug 2009
Educators know there is a disconnect between students' technology experience outside of school and what they use in the classroom. At home many students play and learn with an array of tools that are restricted, banned, or, in many cases, just not available at school. They also know that effectively infusing technology into the classroom does make a difference with students by motivating them, increasing their achievement, and engaging them in powerful ways. With the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), educators have an opportunity to make significant strides in bringing technology into the classroom in meaningful ways and ending the digital disconnect. In seeking federal grant money, educators have a chance to develop plans and relationships that will include technology at all levels in their districts. In this article, the author discusses the preliminary steps necessary to ensure success. (Contains 3 online resources.)
