  Project Overview

The aim of this project is for the students of Jackson-Walsh to develop a Web Page for the school and to include information about the surrounding communities. Students will concentrate on a main page for the school with additional links (pages) for all communities on the North Shore that are a part of Jackson-Walsh. The communities range from Kingston to Caplin Cove (a total of twelve communities).

Students will research historical and geographical facts about these communities and prepare a detailed Web Page using HTML programming. The purpose of this project is for students to share their school and communities with the rest of the world via the Internet.

  Curriculum Connections

Social Studies:

Students will study aspects of their cultures including the physical and environment of the North Shore of Conception Bay, the origins or history of their culture, and the economic, social, and political life.

Language Arts:

Students will research and accumulate information about the communities and organize it in a well prepared Web page.

Technology Education:

The technological impact will be to involve students in various multimedia tasks (HTML programming, importing graphics, shooting digital pictures, uploading and downloading files).

  • Students will integrate technology education with various areas of the curriculum.
  • Students will experience the Internet as a form of communication technology.

Currently, Jackson-Walsh has the following resources:

* Windows NT Network with windows 95 operating system.
