The Kentucky Dataseam Initiative provides computers and professional development to engage Kentucky students in 21st Century skills and learning environment. Currently they have provided 10,000 school computers to over 3,500 education professionals in over 50 school districts.
These computers serve dual purposes. By day, they are powerful learning tools for Kentucky teachers and students. By night, they are part of the largest managed computing grids in the world, analyzing data that can be used by scientist to research the development of drugs to fight cancer.
In collaboration with the Dataseam Initiative, the 21st Century Education Enterprise plans and implements professional development for K-12 teachers in the use of technology in classroom instruction. A range of workshops are available to meet the specific needs of school staff members. Basic introductory workshops are designed to introduce teachers to Macintosh computers.
