This year, I'm working on creating Internet pages for our school, and I
want to do some for the local communities too. So far there seems to be
growing pride in the inolvment of the students. I see little glimmers of
positive appreciation for the things we have in our school, and
hopefully this will carry over to the community. I intend to use as much
original artwork as I can to illustrate our pages - student drawings and
paintings that I will either scan or photograph with a digital camera. I
want to get them out interviewing senior citizens - what was it like to
grow up here 50-70 years ago? I'd like to get them doing some research
at community historical associations and libraries. So I believe that
modern technology is actually going to help open the eyes of my students
to the world they are living in, and in doing so, build respect and
concern for the environment.
