Recent research indicates that 70-80% of all students attending university are unable to write. We want to address this problem as early as possible. We know that in order to become a good writer, much practice is required. The use of the computer and STEM~Net will allow for this practice and, at the same time, promote interest and learning.
This project will allow students to develop computer keyboarding skills and critical thinking that will enable them to connect with young people all across our country.
Students will post their original writing. Our goal is to develop an appreciation for writing by motivating students to write and using writing as a tool to communicate.
Writer's intended participants are grades 4-6 students and possibly, grade 7 and 8 students. Reaching grade 6 classes from schools all across Canada is our main goal.
Students will learn about Canada from participants on-line in some other areas (for example: Cultural, resource, population, language, first nations, etc.)
Story problems, statistics, evaluation, computations, etc.
