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 consortiums consisted of 6 to 20 schools that rotate a variety of technology based equipment between the member schools of the consortium. This rotation concept enables schools to share the cost of equipment and kept expensive equipment in use as it moved from school to school. The results were that the High Tech equipment was being used by students and teachers. Also with the modules rotating between schools it was being used all the time, in effect wearing out equipment due to use rather than it growing outdated on a shelf when a particular class was finished with it.
