What Differences Technology Makes for a High School Career Center
Haskell, Kathleen Shelton; Haskell, Thomas Owen
Theory Into Practice, v47 n3 p252-258 Jul 2008
Over the last 8 years, the steady integration of new media has facilitated the senior project for College Tech Prep students at the Tri-County Career Center. Through the implementation of a student laptop program, campus-wide Internet access, and the availability of information networks and online research management tools, students have transformed traditional school projects into products of value appropriate for the postsecondary level. The center has moved from having students complete a graduation requirement assignment that was discarded upon its acceptance and evaluation and moved to a product that can be taken to the college level, expanded, and submitted as a final college-level capstone project.
