If policy is the “brains” behind an education technology initiative, then funding is surely the life-blood. Almost everyone involved with K-12 education today would agree that giving students access to the latest education technology is crucial to building essential 21st century skills. Yet the issue of funding these initiatives is far more complex. The costs and complexity required to implement technology programs are enough to discourage even the most valiant educator or administrator. Such programs also involve a considerable investment in time. Despite these challenges, countless schools and districts -- including those in low-income communities-- have found the funds to launch or expand winning technology projects.
