Visual Education and The Internet Camp: A Study of Underprivileged Children and Their Web Pages
Unformatted Document Text:  18 reds, oranges and yellows with warmth. In the environment we share meanings associated with the color of the sky, water, plants, and other aspects of the earth. The children may have based their color choices on these natural associations, or colors that are fashionable at the time (for clothing, make-up, hair, or other style aspects). The children may have also chosen their color schemes based on what they’ve seen in other web pages, or based on what they were instructed to use. The possibilities for their color choices are endless, even though there is the basic pattern of bright, saturated, primary colors that clearly place the children’s designs within the boundaries of primitivism. Other content, as one would expect, reflected the interests of middle-school aged children. Boys included professional wrestlers on their web pages. Images of Las Vegas were popular with both boys and girls. These included pictures of various hotel/casinos, the local sports stadium where the UNLV Rebels football team plays, the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada” road sign, and pictures of local schools (the middle school they attended or high schools they would be attending in the near future). Pictures of popular personalities were frequently included. Singers from rap, hip hop, and R&B groups were among the more prevalent, but occasionally a sports star such as Deion Sanders or a women’s professional basketball team would show up on some web pages. Images of sneakers and the company logos were common as well. The Nike “swoosh,” for example, was included on at least one web page. Many of these images were connected to links. The children created links from both graphics and text. Underlined text, for example, was used to link to R&B music pages, sneaker pages, and the child’s high school web page. One web page included graphic links to a Las Vegas information page, the child’s school, his teacher’s web page, and his favorite group (Blink 182).
