Any of the following ideas can be developed for advanced students by having them work in teams to create a Web Virtual Collection or Exhibition on the topic to share with others. Reminder: One of the most important things you can do for your students is help them learn to evaluate information! Have them ask: Who provided this information? What are his or her qualifications? Is this information consistent with what experts say? Does this information reflect a particular viewpoint? What are the other viewpoints? What can I learn from this web page? Here are some sources of information on this: Evaluating World Wide Web Information Criteria for evaluation of Internet Information Resources For these exercises, the search tools of the Web will be very useful.

Extractions: Creating Successful Internet Projects As school bells ring around the world each morning, millions of teachers just like you return to their classrooms with a new instructional tool at their disposal the Internet. For the first time, you and your students have the opportunity to experience the promise and the perils of the online world first hand. The promise? You and your students can access up-to-the-minute information. Events that won't be documented in your textbooks for years can be explored on the Internet today. Your students can collaborate with peers and professionals around the world, and even invite electronic mentors to participate in your class projects no matter where they live in real time, no delays! The peril? While the Net holds tremendous opportunities for enhancing the way teachers teach and students learn, it's an enormous, sometimes confusing place. Once you learn how to send and receive email, and mine the Internet for information, one big question remains: How do you use the Internet to its fullest in your classes, so that it becomes a regular, integral part of your day-to-day teaching activities? Many of your wired colleagues are faced with the same question, but there is a solution: Tightly integrate the Internet into your curriculum by creating and participating in educational Internet projects. From keypal (online pen pal) exchanges between classrooms organized by individual educators, to global online expeditions facilitated by multinational publishing companies, Internet projects have quickly become a curriculum staple in wired K-12 classrooms around the globe. Whether it's measuring the levels of pollution in a nearby stream and sharing the data with other classes via email, or tracking the course of a team of explorers via the World Wide Web as they cross the Arctic, these experiences open up the world to students in ways never before available to schools.

Newsletters Schools Online collaborative projects create and support partnerships between people and institutions internationally, utilizing the power of the Internet to work together for the purpose of accomplishing a common objective. It is our hope that these experiences extend traditional classroom instruction. Schools Online understands that teachers must first develop their own capabilities to use technological tools for teaching and learning before transferring these skills to their students. In these featured collaborative projects, teachers' growth is fostered through technical skill building, professional development and project design. In many cases, the project objectives and activities are mapped to the curriculum that the teachers must teach. Through these and other projects, Schools Online aims to increase the attention to and understanding of using the Internet for project-based learning. It is our belief that this type of education will greatly expand students' horizons and strengthen their capacity to learn.

Despite the fact that computers have become increasingly affordable over the past decade, many individuals and families are unable to afford the purchase of a home computer. It is essential that our public education system play a central role in ensuring that all students, regardless of financial status, have an equal opportunity to develop the literacy skills required to contribute to an increasingly complex society. In a society that cares about its citizens schools have both a responsibility and a unique opportunity to work toward minimizing the gap between the "haves" and the "have nots." Equity of access is not limited to financial constraints. Equity must also address issues related to gender as well as race, ethnicity, special needs populations and other minorities. Computers and computer networks, as well as the agencies that funded their development, were conceptualized and developed predominantly by men for the purpose of furthering the war effort of the United States government (see the
