La telematique a l'Ecole ou de l'Obligation de repenser l'enseignement (A Telematic Network at School or the Obligation To Rethink Teaching).
This report summarizes 2 years of activity within the Edutex network. Launched in 1990, the Edutex initiative aimed to explore the educational possibilities and limitations of a telematic network for schools. Teachers and pupils in 20 primary and secondary classrooms in the French, Italian, and German speaking parts of Switzerland and in France communicated electronically using specially conceived Videotex e-mail service. In addition to inter-pupil communications, many other activities were organized which focused on native language, foreign language, environmental sciences, and mathematics. Chapter 1 describes the historical context and scope of the project. Chapter 2 describes the research setting and methodology. Chapter 3 covers the chronology of the project. Chapter 4 contains observation results, and Chapter 5 provides a synthesis of project findings. Also includes a glossary. (Contains 131 references.) (Author/SWC)
