Project Goals and Objectives

The goal of the project was to involve students, teachers, and graduate students in the infusion of computer technology into the high school curriculum, as well as in interdisciplinary teaming. Technology provided the students with increased motivation, as they researched and wrote for a wide audience through publication on the World Wide Web, and the social import of these issues made their efforts relevant. Teachers used constructivist methods to empower their students, and provided exemplary models for credential candidates.

The high school students collaborated to do research both on and off the internet, in order to build a home page intended to provided a forum, in the form of a newsletter, for information and creative writing about scientific issues of import to humankind, with links to related web sites for additional information.
