Tech Briefs Available for No Child Left Behind Planners
The federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation emphasizes the importance of leveraging the power of technology in all areas of K-12 education. Education leaders at the state and local levels are expected to develop plans that effectively employ technology to enhance learning and increase student achievement. The Northeast and Islands Regional Technology Consortium (NEIRTEC) has created a series of Technology Briefs for NCLB planners. The topics of these briefs were selected to reflect the U.S. Department of Education requirements for state and local applications, and they provide NCLB planners with effective strategies, key questions to consider, and selected resources that will inform the application and planning process.
