National Technology Leadership Initiative Fellowships

Since Fall 2000, the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE) has been collaborating with four teacher education associations representing the content areas of mathematics, science, English language arts, and social studies education through the National Technology Leadership Initiative (NTLI).

The NTLI fellowships were established to recognize exemplary presentations related to integration of technology in core content areas at the annual meetings of each participating association.  

AMTE identifies the winner of its NTLI fellowship through a competitive process that includes the requirement of submitting a paper in advance of the conference. The winner of the award receives travel funding ($1200, made possible by a donation by Texas Instruments) for presenting at the SITE Annual Conference. The paper is forwarded and recommended for publication in the CITE journal by the AMTE Technology committee after additional review.

Thanks to Texas Instruments for their ongoing support of this award.
