Kids and the Internet 1

KIDLINK and International Communication

AT ROSEWOOD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in Rock Hill, South Carolina, fifth graders are exploring science, history and culture around the world with the help of the Internet. Over the last year they have engaged in numerous intercurricular computer projects by accessing KIDS '95, a free international networking service sponsored by the group known as KIDLINK. With its various international networking activities, KIDLINK has united more than 37,000 children between the ages of 10 and 15 from over 71 nations. Through one of KIDLINK's most popular activities, children and their teachers are united in topical discussions known as Internet Relay Chats (IRC's). A chat may cover a wide breadth of subjects, from current events and politics to books and music. By accessing KIDLINK chats, a user may join a conversation at any time, day or night, with children from across the globe.
