Participating schools get to work on four terms' worth of projects on four themes: where we live; how we live; the world around me; and what I want to be.
They will create their own Web pages containing text, pictures, photographs and recorded speech. Curriculum links will include literacy, numeracy, geography, science and history.
The work will be displayed on the Web and will feature in the Learning Zone section of the Millennium Dome in Greenwich, south London. School pupils and their parents can also get involved at 350 special Internet Centres at Tesco stores all over Britain, equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
The project gives a vote of confidence for Apple. Macs were picked for the Tesco Centres because they were considered to be the most stable computers for Internet work.
A full feature on the project will appear in the next Online Education in the TES on July 10.
