Teaching with Technology

** A National Endowment for the Humanities Special Opportunity **

NEH's Division of Research and Education Programs announces a
special, three-year opportunity for support of Teaching with
Technology projects designed to strengthen education in the
humanities in both schools and colleges by developing and using
today's rapidly evolving information technologies:  including
digital audio, video and imaging, hypertext and hypermedia,
video-conferencing, speech processing, the Internet, and World
Wide Web sites.  The Endowment seeks to increase the number and
usefulness of technological resources with rich, high-quality
humanities content; to improve the effectiveness of such
resources by shaping them around sophisticated, creative, and
engaging approaches to teaching and learning; and to increase
greatly the number of teachers who can integrate these humanities
materials into their daily teaching.  Successful projects will be
of national significance and will extend the potential benefits
of educational technologies to a broad range of those studying
history, literature, languages, and the other humanities
disciplines in schools, colleges, and universities.

Any U.S., nonprofit, tax-exempt organization or institution
dedicated to improving humanities education is eligible to apply
for support through this program.

** Types of Projects **

At the Teaching with Technology deadlines, the Endowment seeks
proposals that address one or more of the following categories:

1)   Materials Development:  Projects that plan and design
     interactive educational software with excellent humanities

2)   Field Testing and Classroom Applications:  Projects that
     design and field-test innovative classroom uses of existing
     materials or those being developed.

3)   Teacher Preparation:  Projects that enable school and
     college teachers to integrate specific technologically
     innovative humanities materials and approaches into their
     teaching; these may be national summer institutes or
     collaborative projects among teachers in the same or
     neighboring institutions.

Applicants are encouraged to be as creative as possible in
proposing uses of newer technologies and innovative strategies
for using information technology in humanities teaching.
