This project was created with HyperCard using it’s built in graphics, text, media (sound and movie), and Hypertalk programming tools. The project was never done by students. It was intended for teachers to provide them with a view of what can be done with technology. I envisioned classes developing these topics (each in their own field) and getting together to share information, learn from each other’s research, and conduct educated discussions as they relate to issues that are covered in the news.
This project was quite futuristic at the time and I still wish to do it with students and watch the outcome in reality. I believe that it could add tremendously to students’ awareness of what is happening around them and provide them with important tools to learn, understand, and analyze while comparing different entities to come up with an educated view of the world.
