communication available on the Internet.
We are presently in the Information Age and the
methods of information transfer through out the world are
constantly changing. It is the intent of this project to
have students participate in these methods of information
transfer. Students will participate in activities such as
e-mail, news groups, downloading form web sites,
searches,and the creation of a school home page.
It is the intent to have students communicate with
students from various schools. In this process they can
access help or be helpful to other students across the
Main Curriculum Areas:

School Curriculum Plans:
This project addresses a major concerned expresses in
recent years. This concern relates to the students of Our
Lady of Lourdes High School not being exposed to a Broad
Base Education because of the size and the location of
the school. Communication on the Internet will allow the
students to step outside the the boundaries of their
small school and explore the modern forms of

students, teachers and other groups at a distance
to gather information.
- The Stellar Schools Connection would prove to be
an invaluable tool in fulfilling several of the
ILO's of Communication Technology 2104 and 3104.
Many of these ILO's make direct reference to the
Internet and presently our lab only has one
connection. having only one connection to the
Internet places many demands on students and
staff and in some cases results in restrictions
in its use.
- A wide variety of software and hardware will be
used in the completion of this project. These
would include such things as:
- Netscape Navigator
- Windows NT
- Satellite Access
- Students will become familiar with and use
various forms of communications on the Internet.
- Students will become more familiar with and use
the various types of software used in gaining
access to the Internet.
This project will provide many students with their
first exposure to the Internet. It is hoped that these
students will become comfortable enough with the Internet
that they can become resource people for other students
as well as staff members.
