Technology Teleconference
------------------------- Technology -- in the hands of
imaginative teachers & principals -- can not only help schools
do better; it can transform what schools do. That's the focus
of the this month's Satellite Town Meeting, "Transforming
Schools & Communities: The Power of Technology," on Tuesday,
October 19, 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm ET. Secretary Riley & guests
will look at how students are using the web & email to
interact with experts & conduct original research, how
technology is changing the teacher's role, & how it can create
new links between school & home. They will explore....

* how technology is changing the way students & teachers
learn -- & increasing parent & community involvement
* preparation & support teachers need to use technology
effectively
* ways parents, community groups, & businesses can
encourage & support the introduction of new technologies
in schools.

The broadcast will also feature...

* Mantua Elementary School, a suburban Fairfax, Virginia,
school that incorporates technology into all learning
activities
* Kayenta Unified School District, an isolated district on
a Navajo Indian Reservation, where teachers & students
are using the Internet to find lesson plans, do research,
conduct class projects, & bring the world to their
classrooms.
