The current discussion about the actual vision we have, both individually and collectively, for technology in our schools is outstanding! We are all living proof of the diversity of views and philosophies we have..... and in a time when significant support for that technology, whatever it's role, is potentially going away, I would like to offer a possible venue that might help deepen this great discussion.
I want to call your attention to a worthwhile exercise called "Imagine a Technology Blackout Day." From now until May 20th, thousands of teachers students and parents will participate in a discussion about how modern technologies impact their daily lives at school, work, and play! The day is set for April 20th, but teachers can choose to initiate their "Imagine a Technology Blackout Day" discussions and submit their results anytime from now until the event closes. There are more than $5000 in great prizes to win including iPODs, Amazon gift cards, software and hardware.
The FREE lessons are tailored for K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12 grades. Visit <http://www.technologyblackoutday.com/> for details. We would like to see at least 50 schools in our state participate so visit the site and sign up today to get involved and receive more information leading up to the event! See the information below.

Thousands of Teachers, Students & Parents Will Examine the Power and Potential of Technology In the Classroom During "National Imagine a Technology Blackout Day!"
March 21, 2005 (Arlington, Virginia) -The State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) announced today that it will host the first annual National Imagine a Technology Black Out Day (NITBOD) to be held on April 20, 2005. The purpose of this event is to highlight the vast power, potential and necessity of effective technology use in America's public schools.
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.
From now until May 20th, teachers will facilitate discussions about the effects that modern technology has on students' daily lives. Students will examine the ways technology permeates the way we work, learn, and play. They will even have an opportunity to assign homework to their parents that addresses the transformative nature of technology on the workforce. Those submitting their outcomes will be eligible for great prizes!
By imagining one full day without technology, participants will begin to realize the vast potential that technology offers in the field of education and the absolute need for our nation's students to leave high school with strong technology literacy skills no matter their career choice!
Free lessons and activities for elementary, middle and high school students, addressing state standards in social studies, language arts and technology are available at <http://www.technologyblackoutday.com/>. Teachers, students and parents will have a chance to win great prizes when they post their findings!
