Schools group gets grant

RALEIGH, N.C. – Helping teachers and principals in Wake County public schools improve the use of technology in the classroom is the focus of a $70,000 grant from the Bell South Foundation in Atlanta to the Wake Education Partnership in Raleigh.

The funds will be used to expand the three-year-old Project Lighthouse program, which shows teachers how to incorporate technology into the curriculum, assess student learning with technology and use the Internet to improve learning.

“Especially compelling is the way in which Project Lighthouse will research and measure the impact of technology integration on student achievement, so we can all understand and share the strategies that truly work,” Krista Tillman, president of BellSouth’s North Carolina operations, said in a news release.
