ARRA funds spur tech upgrade

Using stimulus funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, EdTech Associates has conducted the professional development of three ARRA Title II grants in New Hampshire — in math, science and literacy — with the goal of creating 21st Century classrooms.

Moodle, a free open-source learning management system (LMS), provides universal access to e-textbooks, curriculum materials, online resources and web links for independent practice of skills, visual glossaries, forums and assessments. EdTech Associates offers training for teachers in this LMS using Tools for Learning™ Professional Development Service in literacy, math and science.
