Edgewood Elementary School, GA money each year since the georgia Department of education incentive program computercourses were offered through staff development, however, there http://www.ed.gov/Technology/TechConf/1999/profiles/edgewood.html
Extractions: HOMEPAGE Six years ago, the leadership and faculty at Edgewood Elementary School made a commitment to provide our students with the technology that we considered imperative for success in the twenty-first century. Our progress in this endeavor has not come easy, nor has it been painless. Since our school district provides no technology budget, the funding of our goal has been, and remains, a major concern. Primarily, our technology has been purchased through the wise utilization of Georgia State Lottery funds and an initiative by the Georgia Department of Education called Pay for Performance. We feel that we have made prudent purchases of hardware, software, and provided our staff with sufficient training to feel comfortable with the technology. As we began to focus on providing our students and staff with state of the art technology at Edgewood, our hardware consisted of five Apple 2E's on roll around carts. These computers were shared by 21 regular classrooms and various special programs. The students and teachers used these computers mainly for drill and practice and games. When the Georgia lottery was established, the funding for technology became a very real possibility. Within 2 years, we were able to purchase one Macintosh computer for each classroom, automate our media center, and purchase the Accelerated Reader Program. Lottery funding has also provided a satellite dish, two fax machines, and four Internet connections.

Extractions: Development of Training and Support Programs for Distance Education Instructors Melanie Clay, M.P.A., Director of Distance Education, State University of West Georgia, email@example.com Introduction There is arguably no area more important to distance learning administrators than that of training and support for distance educators. Many educators have reached a level of understanding and experience in which they are highly confident in their ability to deliver quality instruction. When they are faced with adopting techniques that seem to curtail their abilities to immediately interact with students and require the utilization of new technologies, they are understandably fearful that their instruction and subsequent evaluations will suffer. Yet, a well-planned, proactive distance training and support program will result in distance instructors again feeling confident and hopeful of the new possibilities for teaching and learning ahead of them. Many will find that they are able to interact with a diversity of students in ways that were dampened by face-to-face contact. Others will eventually find such great success in the distance classroom that they will go on to serve as mentors to the distance instructors who follow them. Why Faculty Embrace Distance Education Even those faculty who resist distance education usually agree that it provides for certain unique opportunities. Others readily and eagerly embrace the concept, focusing on its rewards rather than its shortcomings. These attitudes are greatly varied among institutions and individuals, and seem to be more positive when certain motivational conditions are present. Among the top factors motivating faculty to participate as distance instructors are:
