Visual Education and The Internet Camp:
A Study of Underprivileged Children and Their Web Pages
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.
