>You will be hearing a lot more about the 2009 King Day of Service.
In this press release, there is a lot of important information about the growing awareness of community service at a national level.
2009 King Day of Service – a historic opportunity to call Americans to serve. The January 19 King Holiday, honors what would have been Dr. King’s 80th birthday.
In 2008, DeAnza College initiated programs to include Community Service Learning into a broad range of curriculum areas. The CIS2 Computers and the Internet in Society course was one of a small group of “early adopters” integrating community service learning as a component of the course. So we have some history here. The Community Service Learning assignments are already included.
Depending on the opportunities introduced as part of this national initiative, we may have more options. Please watch for news and updates as additional information becomes available.
Stay tuned. This is going to be a big deal, and you, as a CIS2 participant, are going to be part of it!
