Purpose: As The Role Of Technology In Classrooms Grows, It Becomes A Powerful Tool To Improve Both Teaching And Learning. Many Rural Schools Are Incorporating New, Innovative Technology In An Effort To Help Motivate And Inspire Their Students. Their Goals Include Bringing Modern Computers To Every Classroom, Connecting Every Classroom To The Internet And Making Sure That Effective And Engaging Software And Online Resources Will Be An Integral Part Of Every School Curriculum. Many Public Schools In Rural Areas Lack The Resources To Obtain New Technologies And Cannot Meet These Goals. The Foundation For Rural Education And Development (FRED) Created The Technology Grants For Rural Schools Program To Help Meet The Growing Need For Innovative Technology In The Classroom.
