NetDay: speak up about technology in schools
[posted from National K-12 service-learning list]
MAKE SURE YOUR STUDENTS VOICES ARE HEARD ON SPEAK UP DAY
NetDay announced that it will host the first ever, large scale national event where students of all ages and grades, from communities and schools across the country will go online from their classrooms and share their opinions, ideas and thoughts about how technology should be used in schools. NetDay Student Voices’ Speak Up Day on October 29 will engage the voices of 500,000 students from the small, rural elementary school to the large inner city high school in this national discussion. Register your school today and recruit students to share their views on technology and the Internet in schools on Speak Up Day, October 29, 2003. NetDay, a national education technology nonprofit, will compile the results and provide a report to schools for use in technology planning. The final report will be provided to the U.S. Department of Education to help shape the National Educational Technology Plan. All schools and students in the United States are encouraged to participate. <a href="http://www.netday.org/speakup_schools.htm">http://www.netday.org/speakup_schools.htm</a>.
