8 MicroWorlds Information for Teachers

ABOUT MICROWORLDS Microworlds was started in 1994 as a pilot project created to demonstrate the feasibility of publishing electronic instructional materials for high school students on the World Wide Web. The structure and initial modules were created by a team of writers and illustrators from Berkeley Lab's Technical and Electronic Information Department (part of the Information and Computing Sciences Division) and experienced high school science teachers. Its creators chose to use the Web because this medium would allow for participation by students and teachers in the future growth of the magazine...
