Technology Activity

Students were introduced to four important aspects of the forest:

  • forest management
  • products produced by Louisiana forests
  • products and uses of the forest
  • and recreational areas and facilities located in the Louisiana forests

through an investigation of a CD-ROM called Louisiana Forests Forever. (CD-ROM is available from the Louisiana Forestry Association.)

To investigate the CD-ROM, students were asked to work in groups to complete an online scavenger hunt. Students recorded their answers electronically using a handheld computer and keyboard. Then, groups shared answers by beaming their handheld files to other groups. After reviewing the answers collected by all, each group made a final decision as to the correct answers to the questions. A brief discussion recapped important findings.
