l*EARN
http://www.igc.apc.org/iearn/

B CONTENT:
This site lists 21 ongoing intercontinental internet projects for children at the primary/secondary school level.

B AESTHETICS:
The graphics are fun, yet somewhat uninformative... When I entered the resource room, I had to go to the text version to understand the image map.

B ORGANIZATION:
This site is easy to navigate, but head to the l*EARN Projects, that's the meat of the site.

REVIEW:
"The International Education and Resource Network enables young people to undertake projects designed to make a meaningful contribution to the health and welfare of the planet and its people." This site is provides a valuable resource for students who would like to collaborate with others around the globe. The projects they offer are varied and sound interesting. The means to participate is through newsgroups which students or schools need to sign up for.
