Lone Star 2000: Soaring into the Future with Technology.
Holt, Dennis M.; McAllister, Paula
This paper describes a project at the Lone Star Elementary School in Jacksonville, Florida developed to jointly investigate the effects of specific computer technology and training on: (1) teaching and learning in a first and second grade classroom; (2) the professional development of directing teachers and teaching interns; and (3) the university teacher education program, the cooperation, and the public school system. The computer equipment and technology used was a combination of existing school resources and equipment loaned temporarily by IBM and the University of North Florida. Evaluation of the project was delivered by examination of the specific products created by various participants. The products are described for: teaching interns; first and second grade students; and the IBM teacher trainer. The effects of the project on instruction, learning, and professional development of teachers and interns are described, as well as its effects on the Lone Star Elementary School, the University of North Florida, and IBM. The future direction of the Lone Star 2000 Project is also noted. Sample reproductions of student projects are included. (AEF)
