176 TEACHERS AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS PARTICIPATE IN TECHNOLOGY FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING ACADEMY AT SDSM& T
176 teachers and school administrators from across South Dakota participated in a Technology for Teaching and Learning ( TTL) program this summer at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology ( SDSM& T). The TTL program for network administrators was the first of its kind in the United States.
The program is an initiative by Governor Bill Janklow to connect K- 12 education throughout the state of South Dakota. SDSM& T’s role is to teach representatives from each South Dakota school district how to maintain a network server. Two other TTL programs have been conducted this summer in an effort to connect education throughout the state. In Madison, a TTL for superintendents was conducted to teach participants how to manage technology, and at Black Hills State University a TTL was conducted for teachers to instruct them how to use technology to make an effective classroom presentation.
“ South Dakota is poised to be a leading state in education,” said Dr. Richard Gowen, President of SDSM& T. “ The key element is wiring the schools, and the Technology for Teaching and Learning programs.
“ We are working to enhance individual education and connect the schools in a way so that we can continue to grow,” said Gowen. “ It opens up the state for all sorts of possibilities.”
South Dakota’s Technology for Teaching and Learning program is the first effort by any state in the country to connect K- 12 education and provide extensive training to teachers, administrators, and superintendents in school districts across the state.
