On September 18, from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM, the Global Schoolhouse will be
coordinating a live, interactive videoconference, over the Internet, as
part of CyberFest. '95 for children school, the news media, and the
general public. This historical event will be used to demonstrate how
school children from around the world can use Internet technology to
share music, art, and culture. Students will be performing from their
own schools located throughout the United States and Mexico, while the
Global Schoolhouse/CyberFest event will be held at the Port of San Diego,
America's Cup Museum.

Student presentations will include a flute recital from a Linden, New
Jersey middle school, Raleigh, North Carolina students sharing cultural
experiences from their trip to Japan, the Town School for Boys in San
Francisco sharing art fair photos, poetry from Portland, Oregon
elementary school students, and university students from Mexico sharing
information about their Ancient Culture. Unfortunately, schools from New
Zealand and Japan were not able to appear live due the the time
differences. Student Ambassadors from Jefferson Middle School, under the
direction of teacher, Josephina Cicero, will "anchor" the event. One of
the main goals of this event is to teach students how to be good global
citizens.
