I wish you the best of luck in your meeting.
I just cringe when people say how can computers be used in
classrooms or to teach. I was speaking to a person in the USA
workforce just yesterday and they didn't know that classes are
available on the Internet.
A good example of what is being done in Brazil right now is
available in the archived recording of the Children's Day
Presentation that was hosted at Talking Communities on November 12,
2003. You will hear from teachers, government officals and business
people about 21st century education. Visit
