Hawai'i has achieved national recognition for the success of some of our innovative projects involving K12 students and network technologies. These projects have gone far beyond the simple use of computers to teach and reinforce facts. Hawai'i students have learned to work together in authentic inquiry-based projects, forge relationships with scientists in Hawai'i and elsewhere and reflect deeply on the nature of teaching and learning -- generally within the context of their local communities. Perhaps most importantly, these network-based projects have helped students learn to take responsibility for their own learning. Teachers involved in these projects play a different role than in traditional classrooms, and often learn as much as their students. This month's High Tech Hawai'i will feature a conversation with some of Hawaii's students and teachers who have been at the leading edge of learning and teaching with network technologies. They will share their surprising insights regarding what they have learned, and consider the challenges of doing even more within a traditional schooling environment.

During the live airing of the program, questions may be called in to 956-5670 or 1-800-342-7949 (neighbor islands), or sent by email to hth@hawaii.edu.
