SchoolNet encourages the implementation of regional affiliate programs that build
on our model projects and programs. State, county, or national educational organizations, community technology
centers, or institutions of higher learning typically facilitate regional
affiliate programs -- and usually assume the following responsibilities:
and enlist the help of local stakeholders who will benefit from the Doors
to Diplomacy program (i.e. representatives from local schools,
universities, parent-teacher organizations, county offices of education,
chamber of commerce, etc.).
how local stakeholders will assess the success of the Doors to Diplomacy
program (i.e. number of participants, quality of CyberFair projects,
student achievement measures, public relations, etc.)
the ways in which Doors to Diplomacy activities support local content
standards and educational requirements.
awareness of the Doors to Diplomacy program through local print, broadcast
media (radio and television) and electronic announcements.
awareness of the Doors to Diplomacy program through on-site presentations
and teacher or student workshops.
support to local participants via email and phone.
- Help to
keep participants on task and to complete their assignments on time.
- Develop a
plan for local recognition of student achievement (i.e. certificates,
prizes, awards ceremony, press releases, etc.).
the best local projects to enter the International Doors to Diplomacy competition.
We are proud to
introduce our affiliate Doors to Diplomacy partners and applaud them
for their outstanding effort.
