Our National "Show and Tell"
President Obama traveled to Mooresville, NC to announce ConnectEd, an exciting new initiative designed to help bring America's students into the digital age. The goal of the ConnectED initiative is to bring high-speed internet connections to 99% of America's students within five years.
Then, we hosted a national virtual "show and tell" with high tech schools from across the country for a national "show and tell" via Google+ Hangout. During the conversation, moderated by Betsy Corcoran of EdSurge, students and teachers from the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, PA, Loris Elementary in Horry County, SC and Chappell Elementary in Green Bay, WI demonstrated how they are using the internet and technology in their classrooms.
