Moscow Middle School to Participate in Technology Pilot Program | Arts & Culture
Moscow Middle School is among eleven schools selected to participate in the Idaho Technology Pilot Program.
The 3 million dollar program, funded by the state, will implement innovative technologies that promise to improve student academic growth and financial efficiencies throughout the school. If successful, the system will later be duplicated in every school across the state.
“The demand for technology in our schools continues to grow," explains Tom Luna, Superintendent of Public Intruction. These grants will be able to meet the needs of some schools, after the pilot, the state will expand effotrs so that all students in Idaho have equal access to educational opportunities.
Eleven schools were selected, out of 81 that applied, by a committee of experts in education technology.
Moscow Middle School will invest $180,000 in interactive whiteboards, formative assessments, clickers and other technologies. The pilot is expected to help teachers create more open learning environments for all students and measure their intellectual growth and development individually and as a group.
