Senior Project - KICKSS


Electronic Notebooks for Kids as Global Scientists

Senior Project: 1993-1994
Peter Fletcher, Gary Provost, Kevin Velarde and Brian Zak
Boulder, CO

The Boulder Valley Internet Project consists of a team of educational technologists, K-12 students in local schools, scientists, and teachers developing and testing commercial-quality educational telecommunications software. This software is intended to allow students, mostly in grades 5-7, to collect professional-quality satellite pictures and weather maps of global science from around the world, and then, through coordinated information exchanges, exchange these and other information with students world wide. This student project consisted of designing and implementing a Macintosh HyperCard notebook facility to provide the students a simple, easy to use interface which allows them to collect "pages" of information together into "subjects", which can then be collected into "notebooks". These notebooks and their components can then be viewed on the screen, printed, and mailed to other students. The software also provided a notebook design facility for teachers, as well as a mechanism to automate the downloading of weather images from remote machines.
