Little Falls School District cited for technology
LITTLE FALLS -- The Little Falls School District was one of 12 national finalists for the first Technology in Education Leadership Awards for the district's exemplary use of technology in K-12 education.
The Ohana Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping close the "digital gap" in the nation's schools, sponsors the award.
A national panel of independent judges selected three top school districts in all 50 states from an in-depth study conducted by a leading academic institution. Of those, the Ohana Foundation selected 12 national finalists, which includes the Little Falls School District.
Representatives from these 12 school districts will give a presentation explaining how they are using advanced technology resources, such as Internet and interactive educational software, for the benefit of students and teachers at the National School Boards Association's "Technology and Learning Conference" on Oct. 26 in Denver. The four winners will be announced at the TELA awards ceremony that evening.
