If you are a U.S. educator seeking additional resources to better utilize digital technologies in support of classroom learning, the money allocated by the U.S. Congress for educational technology and professional development via the Enhancing Education Through Technology (Ed-Tech) State Program – EETT is an important political topic to follow.
The ISTEconnects post, “U.S. Educational Technology Funding Updates,” provides some new information on edtech funding included in the recently passed “stimulus package” as well as an exhortation to utilize the the EdTech Action Network (www.edtechactionnetwork.org) to contact U.S. elected representatives about educational technology funding levels. Via her ISTE Community blog, Hilary Goldman has provided several helpful updates about EETT and the stimulus package already. Look for more posts from Hilary in the weeks ahead about these issues. Hilary is the Director of Government Affairs for ISTE.
