St. Louis, MO. – The Innovative Technology Education Fund (ITEF) awarded $144,886 to sixteen area schools, through self-selected professional development experiences.  Forty-two grants were awarded to allow educators to participate at a local or national conference, tour schools in other states, bring a subject matter expert to their school, or design their own experience to increase their classroom impact.  Educators participate in pairs or teams, ensuring their learning and enthusiasm continue when they return to their classroom.
