Conference on Educational Technology Washington, D.C.
September 11, 2000

Included in the report

  • One of the reasons for the success of educational technology is the Education-Rate or E-Rate (or, more precisely, the Schools and Libraries Universal Service Support Mechanism), which has helped bring powerful technologies to our nation's students, especially those from low-income and minority backgrounds. The E-Rate discounts are helping the schools that need it most.
  • The E-Rate and educational technology can open up tremendous opportunities for students-but only if teachers are trained to use it effectively. We are releasing a second study today, from the National Center for Education Statistics, that examines teaching and technology. The report, Teachers' Tools for the 21st Century: A Report on Teachers' Use of Technology, finds that 99 percent of teachers have access to computers or the Internet somewhere in their schools.
