GLEF Launches New Multimedia Project Teaching in the Digital Age.
"Improving the quality of teaching to keep pace with these changes is now widely recognized as the key ingredient to school reform and the effective use of technology," the newsletter states. "Our nation is facing a crisis in developing teachers who have deep content knowledge, who can utilize technology effectively, and who nurture the social and emotional intelligence of their students. Consequently, national attention is focusing on teachers and their professional development."
The Web site, at www.glef.org, profiles schools that are creating technologically sound and proficient learning environments; features articles on new teaching approaches from Secretary of Education Richard Riley; the University of Texas at El Paso; the New Teacher Center at the University of California, Santa Cruz; and others; addresses the changing roles of teachers, superintendents, parents, university faculty, school board members and students; and provides useful Web resources and links.
