Extractions: Online Communications Kids love to talk. From the time they babble incoherently as babies, they want to communicate. Parents know that every child learns to read and write at a different pace, but E-mail has more to do with talking than with writing. Certainly, your child need s to be able to write the simplest of sentences to make E-mail more than gibberish, so this will probably limit use by kids younger than 4-years-old. But make no mistakekids love E-mail because they can communicate with their friends. Mark Gelman is an architect in New York, and father of 8-year-old Josh, and 6-year-old Sarah. Both kids enjoyed a sleep-away camp last summer where they met many new friends. Now they stay in touch with those friends across the country through E-mail, saving Mark money on his long distance phone bills. At first, he was surprised the kids were so willing to type instead of talk, especially considering the time it takes Sarah to compose her short sentences. But it is the very process of using the computer and seeing her thoughts on the screen that excites her. My kids are more comfortable with E-mail at the grade-school age than I was at 35, says Mark. They dont hesitate to tap out a conversation which I would normally conduct on the phone. They love it. Im know it has accelerated their reading skills. I figure they might as well use their excitement for a positive learning experience.

Extractions: National Standards for Language Arts Lesson Plans Teacher Resources Software for Reading and Writing ... Writing Resources Our goal for this presentation is to help others learn new and exciting ways to help make reading and writing more interesting for the student. We find it very sad when children are making low scores on these subjects because of the way it is being taught. We wanted to find web sites and new resources that teachers can access without any problem, because we know how precious their time is. As a team, we have each expressed how excited we are on finding so many resources that are right at the teachers fingertips. We hope that our goal is those of others. We should all have one goal and that is to teach the children with every possible resource that can be found. Our focus for this resource kit is grades 3-5 (general) with the main focus on 4th grade. We think that students need to be interested in reading and writing when they leave the 4th grade. This grade level tells the way that the student will perform the rest of their education path. The following are links to some of the best Language Arts resources for teachers and students on the web. These sites comply with the

Extractions: http://www.waseda.ac.jp/faculty/96050/index-e.html A presentation given at the CALL: Basics and Beyond conference at Chubu University, Nagoya, Japan, on May 31, 1997. I had two main motivations for starting to use the Internet in my English classes. First, I wanted students to be exposed to a wider range of English than they usually encounter in their daily lives in Japan; in particular, I hoped to find native speaking e-mail penpals for them. Second, I wanted to encourage students to use English for pleasure outside of class, and thought if I taught them the basics of e-mail and "netsurfing," they would be likely to continue these activities during their free-time. When I actually tried using the Internet in the classroom, these expectations were fulfilled, and I also discovered many other good reasons for doing such projects. Learning to use computers provides a strong intrinsic motivation for learning English.

Extractions: Multimedia Software "Curriculum and Resources for Youth" began due to the lack of a centralized source of curriculum materials for teaching youth technology. It started as a summary of information shared over the CTCNet list service from 1998 to 2000. As other resources were found, they have also been added. This report is a first effort to centralize some relevant resources for people working with youth and after-school programs. Clearly, there are many more resources for youth. In fact, many of the sites listed point to these additional resources. Perhaps one of the most useful aspects of this report is that the resources are broken into smaller, more manageable categories. Some of these are simply lists of relevant recommendations. However, the resources in the Web Sites section are ordered so that the most helpful ones are near the beginning of each section. The summary of this report, The Best, includes only these recommendations. Please take these judgments lightly, however, as others may have different criteria for their programs.

Introduction to Technology Issues This section of the report will focus on computer, network, and video technologies and their potential for use as communication, dissemination, and publishing tools in support of standards-based education. In the design of any communication or publishing process, computer software, hypertext material, etc., the content provider/author(s) should always ask: who is the consumer of the content to be communicated? what does the consumer need and/or expect from the content? is the consumer familiar with or even aware of the technology to be used as the communication medium or conduit? (i.e., is the technology in question the right tool for reaching the intended audience?)
