Recent efforts by the government have been made to ensure the greater access of these new technologies.
The Enhancing Education Through Technology part of the No Child Left Behind Act is a law that was recently passed by president
Georege W. Bush. It provides assistance in funds and guidance to improve the knowledge of educators using technology and help
incorporate technology into the classroom.
Technology is becoming incorporated into the classroom, but few realize all of the expenses that go
into supporting new technologies. Outside the obvious costs of hardware, you also need to look at the cost of training for
the educators, the shifting of using classrooms and computer laboratories, and the time spent learning basic skills of a new
program as opposed to learning from the actual curriculum.
