Using Computer Technology To Create a Global Classroom. Fastback 356.
Wishnietsky, Dan H.
This brief information guide presents a model for developing a global classroom using computer-based technologies. The first chapter provides a working definition of global education and the reasons it is needed. Global networks enable students at all grade levels to acquire the knowledge and develop the skills to understand and guide their world. The next two chapters describe the computer-based technologies that can connect the classroom to the global community, as well as strategies for implementing these technologies. The final chapter discusses the impact that computers and global education will have on the curriculum, students, and society in general. A resource section lists 14 computer networks and organizations involved in global education for readers interested in learning more about the field. (Contains 5 references.) (SLD)
