Wrap-up The only program NOT participating in the GPR-PT3 grant activities over the three year period was Idaho State University ; every other program participated at least once On the average, one or two faculty per program participated by selecting choices. GOLD STAR participation goes to: Ellen Schneiderman-CSUN Carol Mc Allister-JTC Barbara Hecht – JTC Deborah Stryker- Fresno Lou Larwood – San Jose Liz Parker –Utah John Covell – Western Oregon Marilyn Sass-Lehrer- Gallaudet
Changes in the Region Lost- Lewis and Clark Gained- University of Hawaii
Perspective Although choices were down this year in the GPR, the type of participation was clearly more collaborative among faculty and between faculty and k-12 entities The GPR faculty are significantly more comfortable in their use of a variety of technology hardware and software since the inception of the PT3 initiative Pre-service teachers are also clearly receiving significantly improved instructional exposure to and interaction with educational technologies.
In short We have accomplished what we set out to do –90+% participation of the deaf education programs in the GPR –70+% participation of faculty (full-time) in the training and use of technology –Pre-service teachers who are more prepared to face the technology challenges that will confront them when entering the teaching arena
