Strategic & Institutional Partners
The Learning Technology Center partners with regional, state, and national organizations to maximize school districts’ access to technology and enhance Illinois districts’ use of technology – all in an effort to improve educational opportunities for every K-12 student.
To further our mission of advancing education through technology access and practice, the LTC maintains strategic partnerships with public and private partners that share our vision and seek to support all Illinois students, educators, and educational institutions.
