Valdosta -- A South Georgia University receives a major grant from Hewlett-Packard.   Valdosta State University is one of 40 colleges and universities that receive the 2006 HP Technology for Teaching grant.

 The $69,000 grant is designed to improve learning through the use of technology. The grant will benefit the university's pre-engineering program and parts of the department of Physics, Astronomy and Geosciences. 

"This mobile technology will allow us to take students in the field and if there is any design modification they will be able to interact with each other," Pre-engineering Coordinator Barry Hojjatie. "Student will be able to collaborate with each other and will be able to see the real object. That should improve the learning significantly."

VSU and Georgia Tech are the only two schools in the state that received the grant. More than 4000 VSU students will be affected by the grant during the 2006-2007 academic year.
