MOUSE

MOUSE was founded in 1997 by entrepreneur Andrew Rasiej and Founding Executive Director Sarah Holloway. Along with leaders from the "high tech" community in New York City, MOUSE spearheaded the process of wiring public schools for Internet access in New York City. MOUSE’s first project brought over 200 volunteers together to wire Andrew Rasiej’s neighborhood high school, Washington Irving High School. MOUSE expands for Mannually Operated Utility Selecting Equipment

Today, MOUSE pioneers innovative school programs in support of its mission: to be a catalyst for the effective integration of technology in teaching and learning in urban public schools, empowering students and schools to succeed in today's knowledge-based economy. MOUSE's two main programs are MOUSE Squad, a student-driven technical support help desk program that addresses the technology needs of elementary, middle and high schools; and TechSource, a research and policy initiative that provides information and leadership around critical education and technology issues facing urban districts with the ultimate goal of increasing the quality and pervasiveness of effective technology usage in public schools. Together, these initiatives support 21st century learning communities for public school students and teachers.
