Congratulations, and thank you, for being a part of the 2013 Texas Capitol Schoolhouse! The Capitol Schoolhouse is legislative and educational event that is a staple at the capitol. Legislators and educational leaders look forward to seeing how digital learning is improving the quality of education in Texas. We at the Texas Capitol Schoolhouse look forward to another successful event where school students from across the state can come together to highlight the many ways that schools are using technology to improve teaching and learning.

Texas is one of the leading states in the nation in terms of financial support for educational technology, due to a large degree by the continuing efforts of the Texas Legislature and other state agencies. The students who participate in the Schoolhouse provide a very powerful message on the educational benefits of past and future technology expenditures.

The Schoolhouse is a very dynamic environment and provides participants a variety of activities ranging from independent and group school work, to presentations and discussions with state leaders, or other experiences around the Texas Capitol. Because of the importance of the work being done by Legislators and the uncertainty of schedules for Capitol events, it is essential that Schoolhouse participants be flexible and able to work responsibly under the supervision of their school sponsor.


The goals for the Capitol Schoolhouse are to:

(1) Expose state leaders to the best practices and potential of educational technologies,

(2) Reinforce the ongoing funding commitment for educational technologies, and

(3) Provide a rich educational experience for schoolhouse participants.
