Title II Part D - Enhancing Education Through Technology

 

Title II, Part D - Enhancing Education Through Technology
The primary goal of the Title II, Part D program is to improve student academic achievement through the effective use of technology in schools. Title II, Part D is designed to assist every student in crossing the digital divide by ensuring that every student is technologically literate by the end of eighth grade, and to encourage the effective integration of technology through teacher training and curriculum development to establish successful, research-based instructional methods. Funded through the No Child Left Behind Act (2001), Georgia provides grants to local educational agencies on the basis of their proportionate share of funding under Title I, Part A.

 

 

Continuing Competitive Grants

Increasing Student Achievement with Digital Resources:
In the FY09 Title IID Competitive Grant, mathematics teachers and students in the competitive grant will use technology tools and digital learning resources that enable formative assessment to inform differentiation of both teaching and learning, resulting in increased student achievement in 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grades.

Engaging AP Students Through Mobile Handheld Computing:
The primary goal of this program is to improve student academic achievement through the use of technology. More specifically, goals are to improve the quality of Advanced Placement (AP) programs as measured by AP exam scores; to increase enrollments in AP classes statewide; and to increase the diversity of students who choose to enroll in AP courses to more accurately reflect the demographics of the school as a whole.

21st Century Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Labs:
The GaDOE has established a FY10 Title II, Part D 21st Century STEM Lab Competitive Grant with the goal of seeding sustained statewide emphasis on STEM education. This investment involves expanding the impact of Georgia’s 21st Century STEM education initiatives on the K-12 level – specifically through the creation of 26 STEM Labs in middle and high schools and the formation of 21st Century STEM Lab Governance Boards for each grant school that will partner with post-secondary institutions, STEM research and demonstration sites, community, and business.

eTextbooks:
The FY10 Title II, Part D ARRA Competitive Grant for eTextbooks is designed to investigate the necessary resources, implementation strategies, level of teacher professional development, academic impact, and potential cost savings involved in creating a self-funding model replacing traditional textbooks with eTextbooks. This grant is also designed to identify effective eTextbook materials and providers. Through the FY10 Title II, Part D ARRA eTextbook grant, five high schools will be provided with netbooks and digital textbook materials for all students and teachers.
