Visual Education and The Internet Camp: A Study of Underprivileged Children and Their Web Pages
Unformatted Document Text:  8 design that allows the designer to do everything from determining the font style, size, color, creating links, 8 centering objects on the web page, background colors and designs for the web page, and tables for dividing the web page into various rows and columns. In other words, the children learned the basic nuts and bolts of the Internet and web page design. The children were also taught how to find images on other websites on the Internet to use on their web pages. Each student saved his or her day’s work on a standard IBM formatted computer disk. The disks contained the students’ web pages. Some of the children’s disks contained all of the work they did over the two-week camp--from the first experimental attempts to the more sophisticated web pages they created toward the end of the camp. The disks also contained dozens of downloaded images (many of which were never used for the web pages). The Children The children invited to the Internet Camp were characterized as underprivileged, although the term, at-risk, could also be applied. For this research, underprivileged is a term that refers to a social group that does not have the resources or opportunities that other social groups have. The children who participated in the Internet Camp were identified as underprivileged because they came from a school that had the least funding and fewest resources as compared to the other schools in the same school district. In terms of educational opportunity these children were the “have nots.” The consequences of this social label are a concern for parents, teachers, and political leaders. 8 A link is a way to get around the world wide web from one web page to another. Links are also called “hypertext.” This is text that is “connected” to other pages so when you click on the hypertext, you “jump” to other pages. Highlighted, or underlined text is a way to recognize hypertext. Graphic images can also link one page to another. When the mouse pointer is positioned over hypertext it turns into a little hand with a pointing finger.

The disks contained the students’ web pages. Some of the children’s disks contained all of the

The Children
The children invited to the Internet Camp were characterized as underprivileged,
although the term, at-risk, could also be applied. For this research, underprivileged is a term that
refers to a social group that does not have the resources or opportunities that other social groups
have. The children who participated in the Internet Camp were identified as underprivileged
because they came from a school that had the least funding and fewest resources as compared to
the other schools in the same school district.
In terms of educational opportunity these children were the “have nots.” The
consequences of this social label are a concern for parents, teachers, and political leaders.

A link is a way to get around the world wide web from one web page to another. Links
are also called “hypertext.” This is text that is “connected” to other pages so when you click on
the hypertext, you “jump” to other pages. Highlighted, or underlined text is a way to recognize
hypertext. Graphic images can also link one page to another. When the mouse pointer is
positioned over hypertext it turns into a little hand with a pointing finger.
