Hello Sister Carla.

I have visited an elementary school in Springfield,Illinois that advocates
computer technology in education. They hold computer conferences there and
have motem hook-ups in every room- even the gym! Athough I was there for
a computer workshop, I took a peek in the art room. They had one computer
in the corner of the room. I don't know to what extent the teacher uses
the web, but I would guess it is an integral part of classroom learning.
I cannot remember the name of the school, but it is an elementary schoo in
downtown Springfield. I believe it is considered to be the pilot school
for the use of computer technology in that area. Perhaps if you make a few
phone calls with this information, someone will be able to give you the
name and number of the school. Good Luck!

PS. If anyone out there knows the name of this school, please contact
Sister Carla.
