Project 24 meets West Virginia
We were pleased to provide a full Project 24 report on how effectively educational technology is being used in West Virginia. Our report, released during the West Virginia Board of Education meeting in January – 2014, was commissioned by the Alliance for Excellent Education and focuses on digital learning. In April of 2013, the Governor of West Virginia and Alliance for Excellent Education President Bob Wise, announced that West Virginia would be the first state to implement a comprehensive planning initiative to assist in staging and facilitating digital learning. With 55 school districts throughout West Virginia completing the Project 24 self-assessment, Metiri Group authored the report as a first step in West Virginia’s important work. See the full report online here.
“Gov. Tomblin, the Legislature, and the State Board of Education have shown strong leadership in improving education by using Project 24 for all of West Virginia,” said Wise. “The Alliance is pleased to have commissioned this independent report authored by the nationally prominent Metiri Group as the first step in developing a comprehensive plan for how technology can support teachers and students in West Virginia. Gov. Tomblin, the Legislature, and the West Virginia Board of Education are now leading the nation in showing how a state can lead this effort.”
