The Department of Education's Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) grant program addresses a growing challenge in modern education: nearly all elementary and secondary schools are now "wired" to the Internet, but most teachers still feel uncomfortable using technology in their teaching.

Since 1999, PT3 has awarded over 400 grants to education consortia to help address this challenge. These grants include projects designed to transform teaching and learning through:

  • Faculty development
  • Course restructuring
  • Certification policy changes
  • Online teacher preparation
  • Enriched-Networked-Virtual
  • Video case studies
  • Electronic portfolios
  • Mentoring triads
  • Embedded assessments
