MICHEL MARTIN, HOST:
And, speaking of technology and education, we have this programming note for you. On Wednesday, October 10th, NPR's TELL ME MORE will host a live radio broadcast and Twitter education forum focusing on issues facing our nation's schools. And leading up to the forum, we'd love to start a dialog with you. We are inviting educators, parents, reporters and everybody else to join in via Twitter to take on the tough questions.
Do you see technology and social media as effective tools in the classroom, or distractions? What roles should teachers, parents, the government, the private sector be playing? Our conversations are focused on K through 12, but if you're interested in education, we're interested in hearing from you. Join us on Twitter today using hash tag #NPREdChat and let's begin the exchange of ideas.
