Purpose 

Today's workshop will serve as an introduction to various unique and compelling Internet resources. You will learn how to use the Internet to tap into resources that would otherwise be difficult or practically impossible to bring into your classroom.  In particular, you learn how to find and participate in Internet-based Real-Time data (& Collaborative - AM session) projects and how to find electronic pen-pals, otherwise known as Keypals.
