The E-School Technology Innovation Challenge Grant of 1996 was the genesis of the Department of Education's (DOE's) efforts to initiate a multi-prong approach to bring standards-based curriculum to the children of Hawai'i and use technology to upgrade professional development for its teachers. In this article, the authors describe how various projects have developed out of the E-School initiative and now form the core of the DOE's efforts in information technology and distance education. The efforts include appropriate use of synchronous and asynchronous technologies and face-to-face instruction to provide learning opportunities for teachers and students. A variety of projects support the Department's efforts to develop high-skilled employees through courses and other enhancements that prepare students as well as provide staff development opportunities for teachers. The student-oriented programs are E-School, Magnet E-Academy and Oracle Internet Academy. The professional development projects are the Technology and Telecommunications for Teachers (T3), Advanced Technology Applications, Designing an Online Course, Technology Literacy mini courses, Hawai'i Networked Learning Communities, Hawai'i iLead, and MarcoPolo.
