Designing Metaphorically Appropriate Graphics for a PT3 World Wide Web Site.
Henry, Anne; Crawford, Caroline M.
This paper describes the design and development of a World Wide Web site associated with a Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) grant that was awarded to the University of Houston at Clear Lake (Texas) by the U.S. Department of Education. The Web site that created the electronic community (e-community) was to meet the needs and desires of numerous partners within the grant structure, such as the teacher candidates, mentor teachers, PreK-12 grade level students, school district administrators, university faculty, and grant team members. Through the graphic artist's design skills, the creation of metaphorically appropriate graphics for the Web site became an exemplary community building graphic mediator that offered visual support towards the creation of a Web-based community.
