Welcome Parents!
  Please take the time to discuss the relevance of technology in your child's life with your child any time between January 1 and January 31, 2006. The purpose of this event is to highlight the vast power, potential and necessity of effective technology use in America’s public schools. If you have no experience of speaking on these topics and you are looking for scientific materials, then https://top-papers.com/buy-term-papers-online/ that is affordable term papers are a great option that will cover your ignorance or desire to learn more.

Thousands of teachers, students, parents will participate in the event to analyze and share the impact technology has on closing the achievement gap, enhancing accountability, and increasing teacher quality – not to mention providing a 21st century environment for students to learn, share and grow.

Whether at the dinner table or while riding in the car take the time to ask your child,

“Why do you think technology is important in your school?”

(Example items and services to discuss include: Broadband, blogs, CD burner, chat, computer, distance learning, download, filters, firewalls, Instant Messaging, Voice over IP, laptop computer, listserv, Mp3 player, online text books, PDA, scanner, web log, wireless, VCR, camcorders, digital recorder, video games, DSL, DVD, cell phone, personal computers, internet, handhelds, scanners, GPS, e-mail, spell check.)

We are asking parents to do some "homework" as they participate in Technology Impact in Education in two ways:

  1. First, submit your responses to following questions on our website.
    • Parent Homework Question I  = How do modern technologies help make your child's learning experiences more meaningful? Parent Homework Question II =   Why is it important for your child to be technology literate?   

    **Completion of the survey will also make you eligible for prizes.**

  2. Next, to support the use of technology in your child’s classroom send an email or letter to your Congressional leaders and the White House expressing your students' results. (This step is optional in terms of prize eligibility, but it is very important to share your student’s support of enhancing teaching and learning through technology. Please see Send A Message for the easy step-by-step instructions!)

    Thank you for your participation and do not hesitate to contact us with any question at .
