Abstract

This thesis-project is an examination of how new media, specifically the graphical user interface of the World Wide Web, can be used to deliver effective informal, science learning opportunities for Aboriginal children in mid- to late elementary school. A review of current issues relating to education in Aboriginal communities located within Canada is presented. A model web site, Explore!, and pilot content, developed in collaboration with parents, educators and Elders from Aboriginal communities, then forms the basis for a formative and summative evaluation of both product and process. Because the content of Explore! is only pilot material, summative evaluation by members of the target audience is summative within the framework of the thesis-project, but formative with respect to further development of Explore!
