Using the WWW to Build Learning Communities in K-12 Settings - Part I. Global Network Navigator

Abstract : The World Wide Web (WWW) can play a vital role in the formation and successful operation of learning communities. Just 18 months ago, there were but 100 WWW servers online worldwide, while today there are over 10,000 WWW servers. Current estimates predict 100,000 WWW servers a year from now, according to M.K. Gray's Measuring the Size and Growth of the Web. This decentralized development of information resources, which cover everything from scientific databases to corporate products to traffic and weather reports, is an exciting development for the creation and support of learning communities. Many organizations and companies have developed these resources; only a few have given consideration to how the information might be used by K-12 education. By examining the current K-12 resources on the Web, we can begin to speculate about where educators, students, and others in the learning community may be taking the Web.
