SIS gets state grant

SIS gets state grant

The state has awarded a $253,000 grant to the Department of Library and Information Science in Pitt's School of Information Sciences (SIS) to profile innovative uses of technology in educational settings across Pennsylvania.

Funded through the Link-to-Learn Educational Technology Impact Analysis, the project will develop case studies of at least 12 schools or districts that have used technology to solve a significant educational problem. This effort will result in a multimedi a presentation for release over the World Wide Web that will document the development of technological infrastructures, technology used to support curriculum and ways technology is employed to strengthen learning in the classroom.

The case studies also will provide a historical account of how each developed and identify the key factors at each stage of technological development.

The project will be directed by SIS assistant professor Elizabeth Yakel, with Indiana University of Pennsylvania professor Richard Lamberski and Penn State professors Dennis Roberts and Hoi Suen.
