The Internet’s Impact on School Project (IISP) is seeking stories from middle and high school students
The Internet’s Impact on School Project (IISP) is seeking stories from middle
and high school students on how they use the Internet for school.
IISP is a national study that seeks to describe the rich and varied ways that
middle and high school students use the Internet for school and learning, their
attitudes toward the Internet, and what they would likefrom their education.
Data are being collected primarily through the conduct of focus groups of diverse
students drawn from around the country. In addition, we are soliciting stories
from students not able to participate in our focus groups via our project website.
Our work will result in a report to be widely released in Spring 2002.To add
