AT&T Global Learning Network

COMWEB revitalized ATT Global Learning Network's showcase at Disney "Celebration School" Project

Overview:
AT&T Learning network supported the development of emerging technologies in education. It sought to highlight this concept at a school residing in Disney's Celebration Residential Community. In-spite of the goodwill, the project was not immediately successful, and an effort was needed to vitalize the initiative.

Challenge:
The development of the "Celebration School" involved many experts, technologists and educational consultants. The school itself was apart of the local county school district serving a diverse population of families in its immediate area. Though the project was supported by AT&T and other corporations, it lacked local participation in its design and development. Consequently, a public relations problem arisen.

Solution:
COMWEB was introduced to the "Celebration School" project and was asked to identify a workable solution to the community relations impasse. Through consultation, COMWEB proposed a teacher development program aligning the interests of the school district and community with those of AT&T and other corporate sponsors. COMWEB created four (4) KnowledgeWeb classrooms supported by a series of seminars on the application of learning technologies and teacher development, leading to a successful outcome at the Celebration School.

Result:
COMWEB classrooms became the catalyst for the school district, community and AT&T to collaborate successfully in building the Celebration School
