  Introduction

Welcome to this online introduction to educational collaborative projects.  The 1995 Water Sample Project will be used as an example to show how Internet technology brought classrooms from across the globe together to test a scientific hypothesis.  This project was managed by Connie Rogers, an eighth grade science teacher at P.S. 22 in Jersey City.   This urban district is classified as a special needs school district in New Jersey.  
     
"My students are highly motivated when they know we'll be using the computer as part of the day's lesson"   Connie Rogers
