McIsaac, Marina Stock (1993). The Global Classroom: An International Perspective. This paper reports the experiences of faculty and students at Anadolu University (Turkey) who participated in Globaled, a global education, computer-mediated communication project. The project, initiated at the University of New Mexico, included faculty and students at four other American universities and those at Anadolu. The paper examines the potential of the computer to offer information to people who have traditionally been information poor by providing them with networked data through the electronic classroom setting. A case summary of the participation of Anadolu students in a Globaled pilot project in the spring of 1992 is then described. Issues that emerged as a result include pedagogy, motivation, access to information, technical difficulties, and language. The benefits of a global classroom, as identified by participants, are discussed, and questions about what networked information will be made available, for whom, and under what conditions are raised.

Public hearings were held in Albuquerque (New Mexico), Atlanta (Georgia), Baltimore (Maryland), Boston (Massachusetts), Chicago (Illinois), Kansas City (Missouri), and Los Angeles (California) between Fall 1987 and Spring 1988. The final report of the task force was produced in December, 1989. This document is the verbatim transcript of the meeting. Co-Chair Mr. Jaime Oaxaca conducted the meeting. Discussions include: (1) An opening statement; (2) Hispanic, Native American, Women, Disabled, and Black target groups; and (3) preparations for the next meeting.   [More]  Descriptors: Access to Education, College Science, Disabilities, Elementary School Science

Sullivan, Michael; And Others (1993). The Genesis of Two-Way Interactive Video and Audio for Teaching Students in Rural, Small Schools: A Model for Implementation. This study describes how some school districts have implemented full motion, two-way interactive video in rural small schools and communities. A prototype and guidelines for future implementation are presented. Researchers studied 14 school districts in the Oklahoma Panhandle and eastern New Mexico and three sites in Texas where the technology has been or is being implemented. Findings suggest that use of two-way interactive video is growing in the Southwest region, assisting in the delivery of effective education in areas of economic decline. The technology requires the support of dedicated local visionaries who persevere in technology application. Although expensive, this technology is affordable with support from the local business community, particularly the local telephone company or cooperative. Teacher training is essential to the success of implementation. Education delivered by interactive video was considered effective and was well-received in the communities studied. One table and seven figures illustrate the study. (Contains 35 references.)   [More]  Descriptors: Cost Effectiveness, Distance Education, Educational Technology, Elementary Secondary Education

Zastrow, Leona M. (1989). Evaluation of Santa Clara Pueblo Library Literacy Project. A literacy program was developed and conducted through the tribal library for the members of Santa Clara Pueblo (New Mexico). Two library staff members surveyed the community, developed a literacy program, and then implemented it. The program included both individual and group tutoring. The group classes were more successful, with 64 enrollees and only 7 dropouts; 57 students completed most of the classes and 41 students showed gains on posttests, some of them significant. Students also used the library more often, increasing their literacy skills. The success of the group program was connected to the teacher, who had a master's degree and many years of experience in teaching adult students. The individual tutoring program was less successful, perhaps because two of the three tutors had never taught previously. Two of the students volunteered to become tutors when they received training. (The project's needs assessment instrument and a brief course outline are appended.)   [More]  Descriptors: Adult Basic Education, Adult Literacy, American Indian Education, American Indian Reservations

Clark, Gilbert; Zimmerman, Enid (1997). Project ARTS: Programs for Ethnically Diverse, Economically Disadvantages, High Ability, Visual Arts Students in Rural Communities. This publication reports findings related to "Project ARTS: Arts for Rural Teachers and Students," a collaborative program among Indiana University, New Mexico State University, and Converse College in South Carolina. Seven rural elementary schools in those three states were also selected to participate. This report provides an overview of the project and findings relative to the identification, curriculum development, and assessment and evaluation phases of the project. The present findings contribute to a better understanding of how to identify, and provide appropriate educational services to underrepresented and underserved artistically talented students in rural schools and help achieve equal access in selecting students from all walks of life for visual arts programs for students with high abilities.   [More]  Descriptors: Art, Art Education, Cooperative Programs, Elementary Education

Menicucci, David F. (1992). Development and Testing of a Science and Engineering Fair Self-Help Development Program: Results of the Pilot Program in Three Middle Schools. In seven chapters, this report details the Science Fair Self-Help Development Program, which was initiated in a pilot project at three middles schools in Albuquerque, New Mexico, during school year 1991-1992. The purpose of the program was to provide guidance to schools in developing their own parental and community resources into a sustainable support group whose major function would be to assist the school's science teachers and administration in all aspects of the science fair. The report documents the development of the Self-Help Program and the results of the pilot testing. Seven appendices comprising the greater part of the document include materials for organizing science fairs and copies of the survey forms used in the study.   [More]  Descriptors: Educational Research, Engineering Education, Extracurricular Activities, Family Involvement
