The White House Blog's topic this week is "Education in Focus" and on March 2nd the following question was posted:
What does a 21st century education mean to you?
This is an excellent opportunity to share the power of technology in education and the importance of dedicated funding for educational technology and for 21st century learning environments. This is also a chance to describe the importance of programs like Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) and/or ATTAIN. You might even consider having students respond to the question and explain what a 21st century education means to them.
Details for responding to the White House on this question are available at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2010/03/02/white-house-asks-0. The White House will post some of the best responses and are taking comments on FaceBook, Twitter and Linkedin. I hope that Connecticut will make itself heard in Washington!
