The mission of the Kentucky Academy of Technology Education (KATE) is to provide support, training, and resources that empower educators to utilize omnipresent technology in their classrooms. KATE works closely with the College of Education and Human Services to maintain our buildings on campus as state-of-the-art technology facilities. KATE also works with P-12 schools to provide visionary technology leadership and training to Kentucky educators.
The Kentucky Academy of Technology Education was created in 1996 as a collaborative effort designed to improve instruction and learning in Kentucky schools. The Academy was created and located at Murray State University as a result of an initiative sponsored by Murray State's College of Education and Human Services, with Continuing Education and Academic Outreach, as well as the Region One Service Center, the West Kentucky Educational Cooperative, the Rural Telecommunications Research Center, and the Kentucky Department of Education. KATE has evolved, over the past 19 years, into a resource for pk-12 teachers throughout the Kentucky. KATE also serves as the technology support unit for the College of Education and Human Services. KATE is committed to:
