The Global Classroom. Special Report: Online for Learning.
Caudell, Lee Sherman, Ed.
Northwest Report, Feb 1994
This special report's feature article, "The Global Classroom," focuses on the ways the Internet makes the global classroom possible by allowing children to communicate with others around the world. To facilitate use of the Internet, the Northwest Regional Laboratory (NWREL) has plugged into the network and will be offering guidance for users and a "gopher" to find Internet resources. Several case studies are presented of children's use of the Internet in the northwestern United States. The enormous potential of computers for education is beginning to be realized in the area. Other articles in this issue include: (1) "K-12 Educators and Students Trade Information on Electronic Bulletin Boards" (derived from the "ERIC Review," Winter 1993); (2) "Linking N.W. Schools to the Internet" (Lee Sherman Caudell); (3) "Telecommunications Terminology" (derived from the "ERIC Review," Winter 1993); (4) "Learning Physics in Bits and Bytes"; and (5) "Out Front in the Outback" (Tony Kneidek).
