Abstract

In a 1995 comprehensive nationwide assessment, the U. S. Congress Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) indi cated that, in the process of acquiring hardware and software for students to use, teachers who are perhaps the most valuable part of the education equation are often overlooked. The CEO Forum (1997), for example, reported that of the total dollars spent for technology in schools only 6 percent of those dollars were spent on teacher education. In New Mexico, only 4 percent of technology monies have been slated for professional development (Bingaman, 1997) despite the OTA’s recommendation of 30 percent. Seeking assistance to address teacher education needs, Belen Public Schools in Belen, New Mexico submitted a Goals 2000 grant proposal to secure funding for teacher education and technology integration. The grant was awarded for the 1996-97 school year. This paper presents a description of the Belen Goals 2000 Professional Development Project and evaluation data relevant to that project.
