Navajo schools get teacher training grant

A dozen Navajo school districts in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah received a $1.2 million grant from Microsoft Corp. earlier this week to fund technology training for teachers.

The Navajo Education Technology Consortium, which serves about 45,000 students and nearly 3,000 teachers, received the funds, which will supplement the $7.6 million it received from the U.S. Education Department's Technology Innovation Challenge Grant earlier this year.

The Microsoft money is intended to help teachers learn better ways of using technology in the classroom.
