for Learning In Schools and Homes

We mainly focus on web and other Internet collaborative tools for students, teachers, and parents. The second chapter has been useful to school technology planning committees as it contains "Do's, Don'ts, Maybe's and Lessons."

The report is available in Acrobat. If you don't have a reader, click here to download one. A brief "Press Release" (2K), in Acrobat, that describes the highlights is also available.

  • A plain text version, missing many of the graphs and figures, is available as K12.TXT (512K) (to save this to disk, holding the shift or option key often works as you mouse click on this link.)
