The initiative, called MarcoPolo, is providing training in 45 states and has reached more than 10,000 educators to date. Built on a train-the-trainer model, the MarcoPolo program is designed to help teachers effectively integrate Internet content into the K-12 curriculum. MarcoPolo teacher-trainers commit to conducting MarcoPolo training and/or awareness sessions with teachers, technology coordinators and other educators in their school and/or school district.
