Already, the President and Vice President have unveiled a series of endeavors that serve as important steps toward fulfillment of the national goal and as examples of future action. The President has announced:
How You Can Get Involved
These ventures demonstrate how communities, businesses, schools, teachers and students can work together to achieve what no one person, entity, or even governmental unit, could accomplish alone.
- The formation of Net Day '96, through which a voluntary consortium of companies will ensure that, by the end of the year, every California K-12 school has access to the Internet and 20% of the classrooms in California K-12 schools will be connected to computer networks.
- The nationwide inauguration of the Tech Corps, which will help to bring private sector volunteer into our schools so that they can help to bring technology into our classrooms.
Students can get involved through the American Technology Honor Society (ATHS), which will:
- provide an organization through which students can help apply computing and telecommunications knowledge and technical expertise to expand their school's use of technology and
- recognize and reward students who use their technological expertise to serve their schools. The National Association of Secondary School Principals will manage and guide this effort, which has its roots in the National Honor Society and the Technology Student Association.
