GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Teachers are about to be brought up-to-date with these hi-tech times.
Under the No Child Left Behind Legislation, a new program for teachers has been formed.
It's called the National Education Technology Standards or NETS. Under the program teachers will learn new computer programs to further advance their curriculum.
Shannon Morlan, a technology integration specialist, says the program is especially beneficial for students who are visual learners.
"For our district right now it's about awareness. Letting people know that there are these programs out there and we are working towards them for our teachers and students," says Morlan.
Morlan says that the purpose of the program is to inspire children with new ways of learning.
