Merrow Report: I's Not About the Technology (1993)
Global SchoolNet Foundation (GSN), founded in 1984 by teachers who believed that in a connected world students need a global perspective, brings together youth online from 194 countries to explore community, cultural and scientific issues that prepare them for the workforce and help them to become responsible and literate global citizens. Global SchoolNet's free membership program provides project-based learning support materials, resources, activities, lessons and special offers from Global SchoolNet partners.
Global SchoolNet's Global SchoolHouse Project uses computers to connect schools in the United States and with schools worldwide. By sending video and audio signals over the Internet (using CU/SeeMe Software developed by Cornell University) students can both see and hear each other while they work on collaborative assignments. In addition, the Global SchoolHouse Project invites special guests, such as the anthropologist Dr. Jane Goodall surgeon general Dr. C Everett Koop to meet with students over the network.
