“The role of technology in education is becoming increasingly more important as our nation’s schools prepare students for the global workplace. We are pleased to recognize innovative schools such as Schindewolf Intermediate that listen to the ideas of their students about technology use in school and are taking advantage of exciting new technologies like SMART Boards to engage students in learning.”
-- Ms. Julie Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow

Evans, Walk, & RaffinProject Tomorrow and SMART Technologies recognized the students of Schindewolf Intermediate School in Houston, TX for submitting the millionth student survey during Speak Up 2007. The announcement was made by Julie Evans, CEO - Project Tomorrow and Marci Walk and Rae Raffin from SMART Technologies at the sixth grade awards assembly on Tuesday, June 3rd and the school was presented with a free, SMART Board interactive whiteboard.

Over 367,000 K-12 students, teachers, parents and administrators participated in Speak Up 2007, representing 3,700 schools from all 50 states. In addition to submitting the one-millionth student survey, nearly 90% of the students from Schindewolf Intermediate School shared their ideas on technology, science, careers of the future and 21st century skills with their school, district and state leaders through the online survey. Since the start of this project in fall 2003, over 1.2 million surveys have been submitted.

“Technology has the power to keep students engaged and on the edge of their seats concentrating on the materials their teacher is discussing. We applaud the teachers at Schindewolf for their commitment to integrating technology into daily lessons and are delighted for the opportunity to support their efforts to ensure students are receiving a 21st century education.”
