  Project Overview

This project is similar to the Student Database of I.T.P.s Project at Vaters Collegiate. Students will create a homepage on the WWW describing their Youth Internship Canada work placement. This page will include a biography and photo of the student, information about their I.T.P. (Individual Training Plan), and information on the employer/partner (with his/her permission). Where appropriate, a brief video of the work placement could also be linked to the page. Any information relating to the employer will not be published on the internet without his/her approval and written permission. These pages, when complete, will be linked to the Lakewood Academy school homepage. This information can then be used by other interested students to assist in selecting an appropriate work placement in the future or as a career planning tool.

  Project Goals:

i. To create a database of student placements to be used by other students when selecting placements or career planning.

ii. To teach students the fundamentals of HTML editing and homepage design to present information on the internet in an attractive format.

iii. To make students aware of the need to be technologically literate in the workforce of today.
These goals are consistent with the instructional philosophy of Lakewood Academy. Also, our Youth Internship Canada Project has the following goals which can be addressed by this project:
i. The student will learn how to search for and retrieve information via the Internet.

ii. To make students more aware of the skills they need for employment in the year 2000 and beyond.

iii. To help students develop an appreciation for employment opportunities related to the increasing use of technology in the workplace.

iv. The student will have a general knowledge of computer networks.

v. The student will have a general knowledge of marketing in the global economy via the WWW.
