"One of the incredible attributes of technology use is its ability to assist student learning through access to resources. When broadband access is available for considerable savings, localities can use those savings to provide innovative instructional delivery training or buy more resources," said Lan Neugent, Interim Executive Director, SETDA.
"The leadership provided by Commissioner Hespe and Mr. Popoff has resulted in a great tool to help determine technology readiness for schools in New Jersey," commented Todd Lawrence, Educational Technology Coordinator, Idaho State Department of Education and SETDA board member. "All states will benefit from a tool just like this for their localities and I commend New Jersey for their foresight."
