Teaching with Technology.
Benson, Chris, Ed.
Bread Loaf Rural Teacher Network Magazine, Fall-Win 1999
This serial issue contains 11 articles all on the theme of "Teaching with Technology", specifically about how teachers in the Bread Loaf Rural Teacher Network (BLRTN) are using computers, the Internet, and various audiovisual technologies in the classroom. BLRTN consists of approximately 200 rural teachers in Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Mississippi, New Mexico, South Carolina, and Vermont. Several articles describe projects funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, in which two or three classrooms communicated electronically while studying a literature text, and a Middlebury College faculty member served as online consultant and mentor. The articles are: "Multimedia Authoring on CD-ROM: Applying New Technology to Shakespeare" (Kurt Broderson); "Netting the Past: Putting Our Town's History on the Web" (Linda F. Hardin); "The 'Promise' of Technology: An Interview with Director Rocky Gooch" (Chris Benson); "A Framework for Designing a Computer Conference" (Robert Baroz); "Voice and the Language of Power in Computer Conferencing: Who Speaks?" (Dean Woodring Blase); "BreadNet Conferencing: A Bridge to Other Places, Other Times" (Brad Busbee); "The Face of Lawrence: Integrating Photography and Writing" (Mary O'Brien Guerrero); "Beyond Chat Rooms and Listserves" (Dixie Goswami); "The World Outside and 'The Island Within'" (Anne Gardner); "Creating Community with Visual Technology" (Renee Evans); and "A Letter from the Classroom: Idalia, Colorado" (Lucille Rossbach).
