Title: Environmental Awareness among Pupils via New Media
With help from new media, pupils have developed two computer applications in order to get environmental awareness across to a widespread amount of people, especially young ones. With use of computers and Internet, four pupils gathered lots of information concerning environmental pollutants, techniques, results of pollution and alternative renewable energy. Within June 2005 and March 2006, the information was prepared for two applications that are easily accessible via Internet and CD-ROM: one program presents information coherently and shapely as a game, monitoring and controlling the information that the user has read. This playful way to increase consciousness about our environment is accepted and used today as much as at the time of implementation.
