e-Buddies for Teachers

Below is information and resources for Special Education Teachers to get started with the program as well as tips for making e-Buddies successful for students.

e-Buddies is an e-mail pen pal program that provides opportunities for one-to-one e-mail friendships between people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities. Students with intellectual and developmental disabilities are often left out of technology education, denying them access to the abundance of social and creative outlets that can be found using computers and the Internet. e-Buddies provides opportunities for computer literacy for students, while also forming a new friendship.
