In collaboration with the Institute of Computer Technology, Intel Corporation has created Teach to the Future, a curriculum to help teachers integrate technology into their classroom practice.
Teach to the Future emphasizes the use of technology by students and supports teachers in creating technology-rich units for their existing curriculum. The program trains master teachers, who in turn train classroom teachers in their own districts.
The role of EDC’s Center for Children and Technology in this project is twofold:
- Evaluate Teach to the Future, using surveys, observations, and case studies of participating districts to understand the program’s impact on teachers’ beliefs and practices.
- Examine how the program is being interpreted and implemented at the district level in order to learn how the program can support districtwide commitments to improving students’ use of technology
