Partnerships between universities and local K-12 school districts provide learning opportunities for university professors, K-12 students and teachers, and pre-service teachers enrolled in undergraduate programs. This paper describes a partnership between a southwestern university and a local K-12 school district. The partnership was designed to enhance computer competence and confidence in 250 middle school students, build an on-going relationship between the university and the local school district, provide opportunities for pre-service teachers to observe best practices in technology integration in K-12 educational settings, and allow a university professor to conduct a qualitative research project.
