> The Power of Technology"
> Tuesday, October 19, 1999 -  8:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
> ********************************************
>
> *     In what ways has technology helped schools transform the way
> students and teachers learn?
>
> *     How is technology helping schools to better engage parents and
> communities?
>
> *     How is technology creating new relationships between students and
> their own communities?  Between students and the world?
>
> Get plugged in to these important questions -- on Tuesday, October 19th at
> 8:00 Eastern time, the U.S. Department of Education's Satellite Town
> Meeting  will focus on "Transforming Schools and Communities: The Power of
> Technology."  It's a free, live, interactive television program for you
> and your community.  Arrange to hook up to this satellite broadcast and
> explore what works in schools and communities across the country:
>
> Imaginative principals, teachers and community leaders know that today's
> technology doesn't just help schools to do better what they are doing
> already - it can transform learning completely, changing and expanding
> every aspect of the school.  The Town Meeting will focus on the new
> opportunities offered by the online technologies, the World Wide Web,
> e-mail, etc, and will look at how students are using technology for
> interacting with real-world experts and scholars, conducting original
> research, collaborating with other students around the world, and creating
> new types of knowledge.   The discussion will also feature how technology
> has changed the teacher's role, and how it can create new links be school
> and home.
>
> The broadcast will also feature two exciting programs:
>
> *     Mantua Elementary School, in suburban Fairfax, Virginia. Mantua
> calls itself "A Basic School Powered by Technology." With an innovative,
> comprehensive approach to education the school incorporates into
> technology every activity.
>
> *     Kayenta Unified School District, Navajo Indian Reservation. Kayenta
> resides in an isolated corner of Arizona where the public school is 100
> miles from the nearest public library and 150 miles from the nearest
> museum.  Recently, teachers and students have found ready access via email
> and the Internet, to sources of professional development, research for
> lesson plans, class projects and assignments, and for activities that
> bring the outside world to the classroom.
>
> CALL IN DURING THE BROADCAST WITH YOUR QUESTIONS.
>
> Many school districts have satellite downlink capabilities or you can call
> your local cable provider and ask for the program director of the public
> access, government access, or the school channel. In many cases, these
> stations are eager for programming like the Satellite Town Meeting -
> community -oriented, professionally produced, and noncommercial.  The
> Satellite Town Meeting and local stations share a common goal to serve
> schools and communities with the best possible information, but, often,
> stations need a request from a concerned citizen like you add the program
> to their schedules.  All you need are the satellite coordinates and the
> registration information below:
>
