In classrooms today, student learning and the delivery of the curriculum are evolving through the opportunities offered by carefully chosen technology. Wireless technologies provide gateways to not-so-traditional learning environments. The Internet opens many doors, but not without the need for filtering or acceptable-use policies. And e-commerce has extended the boundaries beyond business-as-usual. How can educators break down the barriers that keep students from reaching their highest potential? Technology-rich curriculum propels students to higher levels of learning and achievement.

Sacramento, California

Founded during the colorful Gold Rush Era, California's capital continues to recapture the rich heritage of the West -- while its distinctive modern skyline offers towering evidence of the city's growing reputation as a center for business and industry.

For history and shopping devotees, Sacramento's colorful past has been lovingly preserved in Old Sacramento, a 28-acre park along the banks of the Sacramento River. Old Sac, as it is familiarly known, has the largest concentration of historic buildings in California, with over 100 restored structures. You will find 124 shops, 20 restaurants, a circa 1870 riverside scene with paddle wheelers and horse-drawn carriages, and restored locomotives inside the world's largest railroad museum.

Just outside the convention center is the K Street pedestrian mall, with 13 blocks of street-level shopping, an Imax theater, and the Downtown Plaza Shopping Center featuring hundreds of upscale shops and restaurants.

There are many historic attractions in Sacramento including the State Capitol, Sutter's Fort and the Golden Gate State Museum. For more information, contact the Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau at 916/264-7777 or visit www.sacramentocvb.org.
