Grade Level: Computer Technology 3200 students
Number of Students: 18 students
Project Start and Finish Dates: Sept. 1997 - June 1998. However, we would like to establish a database of tournament results that would be added to each year.

  Project Overview

Tournament Tracker will create and maintain a web site that will display the results of all zone, regional, and provincial tournaments that are sponsored by The Newfoundland and Labrador High School Athletic Federation. This project will be completed with the help and cooperation of Karen Richard of the Athletic Federation.

In September 1997 students from the Computer Technology 3200 class will be organized into groups. Each group will be assigned a sport which they will be responsible for. That group will then contact the federation to get the host schools and contact persons for the zone, regional, and provincial tournaments. The group will then contact those covering the the tournament and request the names of the teams participating and the tournament results.

Each group will organize their data and create web pages to display the results.

Goals:

  • to develop in each student the value of working together in small groups towards a major project.
  • to demonstrate the use of the internet to display and retrieve data.

  Curriculum Connections

Intended Learning Outcomes:

  • the use of Fax machines and email to send and receive information.
  • the use of Netscape 3.01 to create web pages.
  • the use of scanners and digital cameras to add graphics to web pages.
  • the use of the internet to download graphics to add to web pages.
  • the use of programs like Corel WordPerfect and Paint Shop Pro to add special effects to graphics and web pages.
  • the use of FTP to upload web pages to the internet.

  Evaluation

Students will be evaluated on how well they meet the following criteria:

  • overall appearance of each web page created.
  • the use of graphics.
  • the use of backgrounds and color schemes.
  • the use of special effects.
  • methods used to send and receive data.
  • their ability to work together towards the completion of a class project.
