I have an urgent request.

I will be working at a new Coaltion of Essential School which will be
opening up in Sept of 1995 with 7th and 8th graders and will eventually be
a 7-12 school. We will have an integrated curriculum, performance based
assessment, project oriented-problem driven curriculum, etc.

State of the art technology will be a major component of the learning
environment. We are presently in the midst of deciding on a computer
platform and wish this decision to be driven by the software which will be
integrated into our curriculum.

In the interest of gathering information for these curricular decisions, my
request is this:

Is there a central resource that would provide guidance to the best
available educational software on the market (IBM and Mac's)? I would
appreciate knowing about software for use in all disciplines, not simply
mathematics?

Does anyone presently use software which they would recommend? If so, what
is it, why do you recommend it, and which platform(s) does it run on?

I know about Sketchpad which is available for both IBM's and Macs!!

Thanks!
