Harnessing the Power of the Web

The Global Schoolhouse vision of the Internet in the classroom is grounded in an old-fashioned, student-centered, project-based learning point of view which is well supported in traditional educational literature. In this guide we apply the Internet and World Wide Web to this proven learning context where the Internet becomes a total information gathering, multimedia presentation, and global communications tool of enormous power to engage and challenge your students to learn and to excel.

On this CD-ROM you will find a wealth of in-depth resources, examples, models, guides and tutorials to assist you in using the Internet and Web as collaborative learning media.
