I've created a web page that we use as the "jumping off point" for our
students on the Internet (Links for learning is set as our home page).
I explain that it is rather like the library.  There is a reference
section (with all the really great student directories and search
engines as well as sites for biography, atlases and almanacs), and just
as Dewey has games in the 700's we have a section of fun games for kids.

These can be used as a reward for good behavior in the classroom -- of
course it comes after the completion of work.

I haven't had much trouble yet -- but that may be more related to the
fact that not many of our teachers really use the computers heavily for
anything other than CDROMS.....

I want the library to be an exciting and fun place and being able to
read recreationally is akin to being able to use computers
recreationally - within reason -- of course.  All the game sites I link
to are in fact educational!

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart.  Try to love the
questions, themselves.  Do not seek the answers which cannot be given
because you would not be able to live them.  And the point is to live
everything.  Live the questions now.  Perhaps you will then gradually,
without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answers.
