Summary

Thirty-three member schools of the Organization of Rural Oklahoma Schools cooperated in the creation of six school networks that participated in a series of electronic "field trips" for rural students. The field trips were actually conference telephone calls that allowed students and teachers to talk with experts in areas such as politics, the arts, the sciences, and the world of work. At a 1-day training session, attendees learned how to utilize the electronic field trips to enhance classroom instruction, how to prepare students for the field trips, and how to evaluate the experience in light of district and state educational goals. Students participated in at least four field trips; some were designed for elementary students, others for secondary students. An evaluation form mailed to all participating schools showed that the field trips expanded students' knowledge, that listening and speaking skills were improved, and that the speakers represented valuable role models for the students. Field trips were not as useful in helping students improve writing skills or increase their understanding of global interdependence. All respondents indicated they would like to see the program continue. (TD)
