NET Gain No. 9: K-12 Websites Again (February 1997)

Last year's November/December "Net Gain" asked readers to send information about K-12 Vocational Sites on the World Wide Web. The response to that column and a subsequent "Call for sites" on the VOCNET discussion list resulted in a small but impressive line-up. This list now is on the NCRVE "K-12 Vocational Sites" page http://ncrve.berkeley.edu/k12.html. We hope to update and continuously expand this list with the help of Techniques readers. For now, here's the roster of those who let us know they're out there.

The Career-Technical Education Program

The Web site for this program at the New Horizons Regional Education Center in Hampton, Virginia, (http://www.nhgs.tec.va.us/VoTech/VoTech.html) includes descriptions of 17 one-year and 10 two-year programs.

Catoosa Technology Center

The Web site for the Catoosa Technology Center, a technology education lab at Catoosa Middle School in Catoosa, Oklahoma, (http://www.galstar.com/~kkernba/) is a superb collection of links to technology education resources on the Web, including local and regional activities of the Technology Student Association.
