Today communications and information
technology are transforming our economy and our society, changing
the way we live, the way we work and the way we relate to one
another. In recent years, information technology has been
responsible for more than one-quarter of real economic growth. Jobs
in information technology pay significantly more than nontechnology
jobs. About 60% of all jobs require the technology skills that only
a fraction of Americans now have.
SiG Leading the way today, for their tomorrow.
|But technology skills become important
long before people look for jobs. They become important as soon as
children begin to learn. In a decade-long series of studies, the
Education Department reports that students in classes that use
computers outperform their peers on standardized tests of basic
skills by an average of 30%. Studies also showed that students with
access to the Internet not only presented their final projects in
more creative ways but also turned in work that was more complete
and had better syntheses of different points of view. Numerous other
studies show that children in technology-rich learning environments
showed more enthusiasm, had higher attendance rates, developed
better writing skills and displayed a greater capacity to
communicate effectively about complex problems.F
Technology Program enables all schools and libraries to have
affordable access to telecommunications and information technology.
The SiG program, for instance, gives crucial discounts to schools
and libraries, with the steepest discounts going to the neediest
communities. Through this tailored program, we are committed to
helping ensure that all children--regardless of race, income or
geography--can have an equal chance to learn and succeed.
We must give our children--all our children--the chance to succeed
in the information age, and that means giving them access to the
tools that are shaping the world in which they live.
