Center for Technology in Education Established Partnership with Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
SALISBURY, MD--The Center for Technology in Education at Salisbury State University has established a new partnership with the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse and has become an official Access Center for its services and products.
The Mid-Atlantic Eisenhower Consortium, located in Philadelphia, is one of the 10 regional consortia funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Educational Research and Improvement. The Mid-Atlantic region includes Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The regional consortia, in concert with the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse at Ohio State University, support improvement in mathematics and science education throughout the nation.
One method that the Eisenhower Consortium uses to help improve math and science education is through the development of access centers. Located throughout the country, the access centers allow educators to see Eisenhower National Clearinghouse (ENC) and Regional Consortia resources and services, and to preview educational technology in mathematics and science. Eisenhower Access Centers offer local audiences the technology and personnel to train educators in the use of online resources including the ENC Resource Finer; centers also distribute print and multimedia materials provided by the clearinghouse and consortia.
In addition to the access center housed in the Center for Technology in Education at SSU, two additional access centers are located in Maryland on the Western Shore.
Local educators may visit CTE for free copies of Eisenhower Consortium materials. Recent Eisenhower Consortium publications include: Calculator-Active Materials, Multicultural Approaches in Math and Science, Family Involvement in Education and Staff Development in Math and Science. Educators may also locate on-line support materials for math and science education by accessing the CTE Web site at cte.salisbury.edu and following the Eisenhower Consortium links.
The Center for Technology in Education at SSU was founded in 1993 in a collaborative effort between the Greater Salisbury Committee and the Eastern Shore educational community. Among its goals is introducing educators to sate-of-the-art technology for their classrooms.
