Ed-tech Showcase Inspires Lawmakers


Projects on Capitol Hill underscore how federal funding pays off, with robots, earthquake simulations, math programs, and more

U.S. senators, students, and education-technology experts gathered on Capitol Hill last week for an event that highlighted the benefits of technology in K-12 and higher education. From robots to earthquake shake tables, the exhibits demonstrated that technology is more than just cool -- it can change peoples lives.

The technology showcase, titled "Defining the Future of Learning," was part of the State Educational Technology Directors Associations annual leadership forum, which took place Nov. 1-4. The showcase highlighted projects made possible by Title II, Part D (Enhancing Education Through Technology, or EETT) grants, National Science Foundation grants, and the partnerships that have resulted.
