PALM: Pacific Area Language Materials. [CD-ROM].
Pacific Resources for Education and Learning, Honolulu, HI.
This CD-ROM provides a resource for anyone interested in the diverse languages of the Pacific. It contains a digital archive of approximately 700 booklets in 11 Pacific languages. The original booklets were produced several years ago by the PALM project in order to record Pacific regional languages and to serve as teaching tools. This digital PALM archive makes the original booklets available once again. The text and pictures appear on the screen as the pages appear in the original booklets, and they can be printed for use in the classroom. Included with the archive is "Putting the Mother Tongue Back into the Classroom: ESL and Bilingual Education in Micronesia" (Robert E. Gibson, PALM Project Coordinator for the original booklets). The CD-ROM includes a README file with information about installation, startup, navigation, searching, and printing; links to the PALM booklets in 11 Pacific Island languages; information about PREL; a search features for searching by specific words; and a list of credits. This CD-ROM may be used on IBM PC or Macintosh computers. (SM)
