E-Rate Corruption, Twitter Lessons, and More

There have been a couple of interesting ed-tech stories on the AP wire over the past couple of days that readers of this blog may be interested in learning more about. First, the Houston school district has agreed to pay an $850,000 settlement for providing false information to the federal E-Rate program, the U.S. Department of Justice announced today.

Also, some Kentucky school districts are embracing Internet tools like Twitter and YouTube in class. Apparently, the decision to block those Web sites has been recently re-evaluated, and some school districts are just now being allowed to explore them with students.

You can always keep up with the latest ed-tech news either here, or on the Digital Directions homepage.
