Technology Learning Cooperative (TLC)

TLCLogo

The Technology Learning Cooperative (TLC) is part of the ND Career and Technical Education Emerging Technology project that began as a High Tech Initiative in the late 1980’s. Emerging Technology consortium groups consist of 6 to 20+ schools that rotate a variety of technology based equipment between the member schools in the consortium. This rotation concept enables schools to share the cost of equipment and keep expensive equipment in-use as it rotated and shared from school -to-school.  The High Tech equipment is now being used by students and teachers year round, rather than it growing outdated on a shelf when a school or particular class is completed using it within their lessons and/or curriculum.
