Abstract
¿Clicking in the Classroom with Bill the Magic Kat¿ ¿ integrates an interactive multimedia technology with innovative instructional techniques to create learning experiences for youth with varying capabilities and diverse cultural experiences. Youth, teachers, and Netcitizens come together with iC to explore students' emotional and intellectual needs. Our mentoring program is created for youth and by youth under the guidance of emotional intelligence principles, the program's foundation. In tandem with school curriculum, the program increases literacy, problem- solving, creativity, and emotional intelligence skills. Using constructivist and systematic methodologies, Phase I allows iC staff and consultants to research and utilize El principles to write the interactive dialog while high school students design and develop a prototype for an emotional intelligence learning environment for youth. ages 7-12. Then we use program evaluation methods to assess the effectiveness of the project on targeted populations. During Phase III, we create an expanded version and market it to classrooms nationwide via the Internet. The program will reach its pinnacle when it becomes a full-fledged learning program for youth and when the children see their stories in books and CD-ROM stories on the bookshelves of libraries and bookstores across the country.
