Internet & ESL Resource CDROM. Kentucky Migrant Technology Project [CD-ROM].
Ohio Valley Educational Cooperative, Shelbyville, KY.
Developed by the Kentucky Migrant Technology Project, this CDROM contains English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) lessons, Internet resources for ESL and migrant education, and educational games. The disk runs in Windows 95 or 98. The ESL lessons were created in Microsoft PowerPoint and are best viewed with Microsoft's PowerPoint Viewer97, which can be installed from this CDROM. ESL lessons for practical living cover greetings, going places, school, classroom, and going on vacation, and include audio in English or Spanish. The Internet resources--a collection of participating Web sites--are divided into themes with subcategories: friendship (diversity, sharing and cooperation, reading, resources, art); "all about me" (my body, families, communities, environment, careers, games and art, reading, resources); health (careers, food, games, resources); space (the planets, practice and reading selections, careers, resources); teacher resources; and fun. Each Web site includes grade levels and reference to relevant Kentucky Learning Goals. The Web sites themselves must be viewed with a Web browser; Netscape Navigator 4.0 is included on this disk. Games include Web site games plus a few sample "shareware" games, which have information on upgrading to the full versions. (SV)
