Building a Learning Community: Telecommunications, Collaborations, and Sharing on Long Island.
Schneiderman, Bette E.; Carriero, Corinne
The Long Island Team is a collaborative system of K-12 students and teachers, university students and faculty, and community members who have been linked by telecommunications and in-person sessions. Since 1993 the group has culminated their work together at an annual sharing event. This paper provides the history of the learning community, a list of past and present major contributors, details about several of the group's "live" face-to-face sessions, and some examples of presentations given at past sharing events. In a more general sense, the paper discusses the synergy and compatibility that are forged from 24-hour-a-day access and from working together on meaningful projects. (Author/BEW)
