"Technology Rich Classrooms in Kansas are funded through the competitive portion of Title IID, Enhancing Education Through Technology, as a requirement of No Child Left Behind. The primary goal of the Ed Tech program (Title IID) is to improve student academic achievement through the use of technology in elementary and secondary schools. It is also designed to assist every student regardless of race, ethnicity, income, geographical location, or disability in becoming technologically literate by the end of eighth grade, and to encourage the effective integration of technology resources and systems with professional development and curriculum development to promote research-based instructional methods that can be widely replicated.
