Attention All!

This announcement is to let all of you, who have been inquiring, know
that the Global Schoolhouse(TM) Project is very much alive and well - and
growing!

To clear up the confusion, the funding cycle for original project that
was funded by National Science Foundation and other sponsors, has
officially ended. However, the work of building the "Global Schoolhouse,"
that began over a decade ago with the Global SchoolNet Foundation(GSN),
continues.

The concept for a "global schoolhouse" originated in 1985 when teachers
in San Diego linked their students to classrooms on the east coast. With
a grant from the National Science Foundation in 1992, GSN launched the
"official" Global Schoolhouse Pilot Project that showcased live
video-conferencing over the Internet.

Global SchoolNet Foundation is very interested in identifying schools,
organizations, businesses, and individuals who want to become "partners"
in expanding the concept of the Global Schoolhouse. This is an
international effort to encourage "change agents" to work together to
improve education and to support lifelong learning.
