of teachers, parents, and members of our community.
TELEMENTORINGThe Milken report found that teachers on a scale of 1-5, with 1 being no significance and 5 being very significant, rated the use of telementors 4.3. Teachers also assessed the impact and benefit on student performance to be 4.0, using the same scale as above.
The extent of student benefits from the Internet was reported to be a function of the extent to which telecommunication was promoted as integral to the curriculum and in particular to specific student-initiated projects. Finally, over 75% of the Telementors reported that as a result of the Telementoring Program, "important student benefits were attained" and "the effort was clearly worth it". (Milken, 1997)
