$30,000 grant helps schools’ technology readiness

A state-funded program will help a couple of local school corporations assess their current technological readiness as well as provide a model of how to integrate technology into teaching learning for other school corporations.

“This will allow us to plan for our future technology here,” superintendent Roger Bane told Brownstown Central Community School Corp.’s Board of Trustees during its meeting Tuesday at the administration building.

Bane was referring to a $30,000 grant the corporation recently received from the Indiana Department of Education through its Office of eLearning.

The purpose of the grants is to encourage thoughtful technology planning in small school districts interested in creating or increasing the potential for eLearning in their classrooms, according to a press release from Candice Dodson, director of the Office of eLearning.
