This videotape provides ideas on how to effectively use the Internet in educational settings and raises key issues that should be dealt with prior to embarking on a program for upgrading the technological infrastructure of a district. Topics covered include the importance of the Internet as a learning tool, planning effective use of the Internet, where to look for funding and how to get support, and instructing the teachers and students. Three typical schools are featured, each of which was attempting to solve the problems of connecting to the Internet. The program represents a cooperative effort between the public and private sector to provide schools with information that was formerly available only at great cost. (AEF)
