Diane Hammond teaches at Cameron Street Public School in Collingwood, Ontario; Marjan Glavac at Bonaventure Meadows Public School in London, Ontario; and James Robertson at Ingersoll District Collegiate Institute in Ingersoll, Ontario. But thanks to the Internet, three teachers in three different locations, and their classes, are able to work together on such projects as NewsOntario, through which students create their own Internet newspaper. Their students are also able to work with new friends from all over the world. Classes have participated by email in an Arctic expedition, sent messages to world leaders gathered in Denmark and worked with a California author.
