Gooler, Dennis D.; And Others
This conference convened 35 leaders and experts in telecommunications and education in order to consider ways in which the educational community can be more involved and effective in telecommunications policymaking and to promote positive uses of telecommunications in education.

Attendees included representatives from federal, state, and local public and private organizations from both the telecommunications sector and the educational community. This report details recommendations for educators, collaborative projects and agencies, and federal and state governments.
