Technology Grant for Buffalo
US Department of Education (DOE) has awarded a $1.3 million three-year
grant to a consortium composed of the University at Buffalo’s
Graduate School of Education (GSE), the UB Center for Applied
Technologies in Education (CATE), the Buffalo Public Schools and
WNED-TV, Channel 17. The new implementation grant will fund in-service
education in the use of educational technology for teachers and
pre-service teachers at 15 Buffalo schools over the course of
the three-year grant. In addition, the grant will fund professional
development efforts for members of the UB teacher-education faculty,
so that faculty members possess the same instructional-technology
skills that are being developed in the school’s teacher-education
graduates. The project’s principal investigators are Donald Jacobs,
Ph.D., associate dean for research and technology in the Graduate
School of Education, and Suzanne Miller, Ph.D., associate professor
of English education in the Department of Learning and Instruction.
