State of technology update

Alabama: Don Siegelman

In his Feb. 6 address, Siegelman mentioned that every Alabama school would be connected to the Internet and vowed to make the state a national leader in school technology.

He also said teacher preparation programs don't require teachers to be technologically competent, prompting him to wonder how would students learn if teachers are "hitchhikers on the information superhighway." He said the state must require all teachers to be competent in technology before they enter the classroom.
