Title II, Part D – Enhancing Education Through Technology
The reauthorization of ESEA represents a clear commitment to transforming the Federal role in education so that “No Child is Left Behind.” At the heart of this effort is a commitment to focus on students, equip teachers, empower parents, and inform decision makers to ensure every child receives a quality education. The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 advances this commitment by providing a number of exciting reforms, tools and programs, many of which are reliant on the appropriate and effective use of technology. In a target effort to improve student achievement through the use of technology, an new educational technology program, namely, Enhancing Education Through Technology is outlined in Title II D of NCLB.
Besides EETT Educational Technology Program, technology has been recognized in the NCLB Legislature as a powerful tool to connect the dots and enhance teaching and learning capacities in various ways in different program areas:
Focus on Student Academic Achievement: NCLB has placed an unmistaken focus student academic achievement and translated that priority throughout various education programs and initiatives. The Ed Tech Program (EETT) is designed to improve student academic achievement through expanded learning opportunities, innovative teaching and learning environment, effective teaching and learning process as a result of integrative use of technology by teachers and students.
Integrative Approach to Education Programs: Besides targeted funding for technology, many of the education programs, such as Reading First, Teacher Quality Assurance, etc., allow recipients to acquire and integrate technology resources to accomplish various program’s goals and objectives.
Emphasis on Professional development: A range of programs offer funds for professional development to ensure teachers understand how to integrate appropriate technology tools effectively with their curriculum and into their classroom teaching and learning. Encouragement of partnership between K-12 and higher education communities will bridge the gap in teacher preparation between in-service and pre-service boundaries. Additional resources are made available for teacher preparation initiatives.</p></li>
Evidenced Based Education: Throughout the No Child Left Behind Act is a commitment to funding strategies that have been proven to work based on research-based models and promising practices. A commitment to researching what works along with measuring the impact technology has on instruction and learning is evidenced by the focus placed on state evaluations along with a national multi-year study intending to explore the conditions needed for effective use of technology.

However, new edtech tools can help students study smarter. One favorite study tools for students is the LiveScribe Smartpen.
**Livescribe smartpen** captures everything students hear, draw and write during class, allowing them to simply tap the ink on their notebooks to play back everything recorded at that moment. The smartpen then transfers all their notes and recordings to a desktop, laptop, tablet, or other mobile device, so students can study anytime, anywhere. They can search for key phrases and create custom digital notebooks to better organize their test prep notes. Smartpens are useful study tools for creating interactive vocabulary flash cards, practicing essay prompts, and recording tutoring sessions when preparing for the upcoming standardized tests.
