Education & Tech: News for Educators

  • Brownwood schools aim for paperless classrooms

    The district earned $500,000 with the state’s Vision 2020 Immersion grant that pays for every eighth-grade student to have a laptop as early as January. Blincoe (Brownwood Independent School District Superintendent) believes that grant probably came through largely because the district already dedicated about $1.2 million to equip all 1,000 high school students with laptops this fall.

    Some suggested topics are listed below:
