As some of you know, the Achievement Through Technology and Innovation (ATTAIN) bill recently was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill seeks to refine and expand the Enhancing Education Through Technology portion of the federal No Child Left Behind Act. Here's the draft language of the bill:

Here's my favorite language in the bill:

[Each state application for funds shall include a] 'description of how the State will ensure that teachers, paraprofessionals, library and media personnel, and administrators in the State are technologically literate.'

Woo hoo! State specificity regarding administrator technology literacy. I'm all over it!

CoSN, ISTE, SETDA, and SIIA all have come out in support of the bill. Check it out and see if it's something you can get behind. If so, contact your House representative!
