The Communication Revolution--publication; ENC
Communicating across cultures, across time, and across the country has been revolutionized through modern technology. Teachers can now rely on far-distant peers for support and cooperative reflection to improve their practice.

* GirlTECH '95 Tech Teacher; Master Teacher '96, '97, '99, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004   The Center for Research on Parallel Computation (CRPC) is proud to sponsor TeacherTECH '01, a teacher training and student technology council program. During GirlTECH's initial two-week training period, held June 18 through June 29 at Rice University in Houston, Texas, participating teachers from the Houston area will receive intensive technology training and explore innovative teaching strategies that impact gender equity in the classroom. This year's TeacherTECH participants also will attend the Mathematical and Computational Sciences Awareness Workshop (MCSA) held during the same 2 weeks.

Middle School Math Institute --Oklahoma State Department of Education School ('99)  keynote address: This presentation will help demonstrate how to explore the World Wide Web and search for creative lessons in mathematics and science. We will also explore the ways students can use the Internet to research real-world projects and illustrate how teachers learn from each other by collaborating on projects.

 *TERC Teacher/Research teamTERC's mission to improve math and science education is pursued through project work. TERC currently has over forty-four active projects that are funded by government agencies, private foundations, and industry. The projects form clusters in which the work of one project informs and builds on the work of others. This project is in collaboration with The Math Forum, an online community funded in part by the National Science Foundation and hosted by Swarthmore College, has been built with the contributions of math educators, interested volunteers, and online programming groups, including the Perl and Apache communities. We gratefully acknowledge hardware and software contributions from the Microsoft and Hewlett Packard Corporations.

 * Eisenhower National Clearinghouse's November's "Digital Dozen. ENC searches the Net for new and fascinating resources for math and science--check here monthly for great links. Previous months will be archived.

* Online Internet Institute mentor. The Online Internet Institute (OII) is a collaborative project between Internet using educators, proponents of systemic reform, content area experts and teachers desiring professional growth.

 *Park City Mathematics Institute (PCMI) The IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute (PCMI) is a mathematics education program that integrates the research and education components of the mathematics community in a unique way, allowing members of each to attain a deeper understanding of the mathematical enterprise. This program brings together high school mathematics teachers, undergraduate and graduate students, college and university faculty, and researchers working at the most advanced levels of mathematical inquiry to participate in distinct but overlapping programs. Educators and researchrs come together as equal partners in a supportive setting where education at all levels is the explicit concern. The topic for the 1995 summer program is Nonlinear Wave Phenomena.

 * Expanding Your Horizons This conference gives middle school girls an opportunity to meet female role models, and to participate in hands-on workshops in non-traditional careers for women.
