This newsletter issue is devoted entirely to the goals and achievements of Project Estrella (Encourage Students through Technology To Reach High Expectations in Learning, Lifeskills, and Achievement), one of six migrant education technology projects funded by the U.S. Department of Education. "ESTRELLA Connects for Learning" describes the use of technology and mentors to connect migrant students in Montana, New York, and Illinois with their home school districts in Texas. Strengths of the program include excellent planning and management, experience from pilot technology projects, and partnerships with NovaNET educational consultants. Sidebars give student comments and ESTRELLA receiving sites by state. "Online All the Time--Cyber Mentors in Action" describes the online mentors from the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas, who work with migrant students to facilitate their enrollment in college.

"Images Strengthen Writing in ESTRELLA" reports on ESTRELLA's involvement with the Polaroid Education Program, which teaches visual learning strategies to stimulate effective written and spoken communication.
