Federal grant funds MU teaching technology
Columbia, MO —
The U.S. Department of Education awarded a federal grant worth $12.3 million to a state education center on the Mizzou campus.
Researchers at the eMINTS Center at MU's College of Education will use the money to study the integration of teaching and technology.
The researchers also received more than $3 million in matching gifts to make their grant one of the largest in their college's history.
eMINTS helps teachers create classrooms where students experience real life learning through technology.
eMINTS Associate Director Christie Terry said, "They might take raw data and organize it. See patterns and trends so that they can really understand what's going on. These are things that we do in the real world and we want to see our students doing in the classroom."
Researchers want to expand their eMINTS program throughout the nation.
