The Northeast and the Islands Regional Technology in Education Consortium (NEIR*TEC) helps educational leaders at the state, district, and school levels address the many challenges involved in putting technology to effective use, particularly in schools in underserved urban and rural communities. NEIR*TEC offers educational leaders a mix of face-to-face institutes and online "any time, any place" workshops. Online resources include interactive guides to planning and evaluation, online communities of learners, and analyses of critical issues. NEIR*TEC works directly with state and local education authorities to provide technical assistance that addresses the specific needs of underserved communities. TERC is one of four partners in NEIR*TEC. Funded by the Education Development Center through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
