The LT. Governor's priorities are focused on the basics of education and public safety. Technology in education in particular is a top priority for him. 'Tm pleased to see that DOE has been able to use ARRA funds to purchase smart boards, iPads, and computers for their students. Students are using these in classrooms to find information, to help solve community issues, and teachers are using them to ensure our children are not only receiving quality education, but also learning how to use technology and the new mediums made available through new technologies."
