Dan Shahbazi, Internet Products, Inc.

May16--Internet Products today announced that it will begin “Innovation Ovation,” a program designed to help schools, districts and COEs promote information about their individual role in improving student, faculty and parental use of Internet technology.

“There are many educational points in the state that are doing some truly incredible things with Internet technology,” said Internet Products’ president Farley Stewart. “Our view is that if others are privy to this information it could act as a catalyst to lead more schools in more innovative directions.” Three educational sites will be selected to participate in an in depth study about their innovative approach to shaping and deploying the use of Internet technology at their school, district or COE.

Only schools, districts and COEs with Internet access will be considered for the program. Submissions are being accepted until June 30, and the results will be submitted for future DataBus release as well as printed copies given to the selected site. In addition, selected sites will be promoted in their local media.

For further information about the “Innovation Ovation” program contact Dan Shahbazi at 888-InterGate (468-3742), extension 109. To enter a program submission send a 150 word description of how your site is using Internet technology in an innovative manner to [email protected].
