John F. Kennedy High School in the Bronx has a student population of nearly 5,000. It is one of America's largest high schools.
My multiethnic students reside in the inner city. Many do not have access to technologies that would connect them to the Internet.
Indeed, many have no telephone, let alone computers.
Here is a brief description:
The students at John F. Kennedy high school take pride in announcing a new expansion of Learning About Leonardo beyond its initial arts and student creativity efforts.
We invite you to tour our new Arti FAQs 2100, a visually captivating, contagiously engaging, multimedia look at arts past history, a forward glance and future trip into 2100 as envisioned by John F. Kennedy High School students.
In response to site surveys and visitors' requests, we are pleased to offer two new challenging quizzes and the opportunity to achieve the Leonardo Key to the Future Art Gallery.
Take an advanced peek into Cities of the Future, the Peter Max inspired Mona Moo Kennedy Cow, and our digital divide dissolving efforts through FluidArts and the Virtual Africa River Festival.
We are confident as admirers of Leonardo's futuristic visions you will let Learning About Leonardo lead you to Arti FAQs 2100 to take this journey through a broader universe of Past, Present and Future.
We look forward to your visit and comments on this new module, our response to the Microsoft Beyond 2000 challenge.
This was a triumphant week. They met the Microsoft Challenge to predict Art 2100 through a research grounded review of the materpieces of art past and present and the creation of their own graphic depictions of Art 2100 complete with descriptions. The web site we created ArtiFAQ 2100 functions as an expansion of of our award winning Why is the Mona Lisa Smiling ThinkQuest project, which focused on an in depth multiple perspectives study of Leonardo as artist, inventor, futurist, scientist, writer and citizen of the world.
The students built on their expertise with multimedia production, web design, integration of rewards, music, use of copyright material and other internet skills to develop this captivating intellectually compelling and entertaining, substantive web resource.
Their efforts brought them a First Place distinction.
We will be receiving color printers, microscopes, digital video camera and scanner to enhance our lab.
