Abstract:

This study examined children's web pages that were created in a visual literacy program called "The Internet Camp." Because there is little evaluative research regarding the effects of visual literacy programs, this study was conducted as a small step toward filling this gap in the literature. The study provides a history of visual literacy programs, background on the children who participated in the program, and an analysis of their web pages. Initially it was thought that the children's underprivileged status might affect their web page design. An aesthetic analysis found no profound influence of their social status on their web pages. An overall primitivistic, yet sophisticated style was evident in their web page designs. The outcome of the literacy program found little linkage between the children's social status and how and what they visually created.
