AEF & Arlington Public Schools:
Transforming Education through Technology

Accelerate Connect Innovate
Bring innovative technology to more students sooner Create a strong community-education partnership Offer our students truly innovative opportunities
The AEF Technology Initiative will ensure that technology enhancements reach students as quickly as possible and have a broad impact. Furthermore, since this is private funding, no changes in the pubic funding at the local, state or federal level can divert it from the intended goals. The Arlington community is rich in expertise in both technology and education. With so many entrepreneurs, professors, technologists and teachers, a strong a community-education partnership can contribute to an effective technology plan and create connections to give our students unique experiences. Arlington is in a unique position to be able to offer our students truly innovative opportunities to both learn with technology and build the foundation to become technologist themselves by tapping into the knowledge and networks of our community of entrepreneurs and educators.
