Does anyone have any travel experience in this part of the country?  Are

Subject: NCCIU- International School Partnerships through Technology


I am working this summer with the North Carolina Center for
International Understanding to develop their International School
Partnerships through Technology program.  Part of the funding for this
project is from the Soros Foundation.  Our obligation is include schools
in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union in the partnerships.
Please share this announce and request for partners with teachers and
schools that have internet access (e-mail only is acceptable), interest
in international communication, and the ability to communicate in
English. (Sorry about that last requirement!)

I will attending the International Conference on Technology in Education
in Oslo, Norway in August and would be very interested in meeting any
K-12 (Kindergarten to 12th grade) educators that will be there.

Purpose of the Program: To create opportunities for rural North Carolina

teachers and students to use telecommunication technology to interact
directly with teachers and students from other countries.  The
International School Partnerships through Technology (ISPT) will provide

opportunities to use technology and to learn from international
counterparts by establishing school-to-school, classroom-to-classroom
partnerships by designing international projects to meet local needs.

Reason for the Program: To prepare North Carolina students to compete in

today's global marketplace.  To face this challenge, students will need
to build relevant competencies, such as language skills, technology
skills, respect for different cultures, ability to communicate across
cultures, and ability to understand events in other countries and their
impact on the U.S. and North Carolina.

Objectives of the Program: To bring international contact by the use of
telecommunications to North Carolina students and teachers. NCCIU will
identify schools in rural areas with an interest in forming
international school partnerships. Priority placement will be given to
high schools.    A network for finding North Carolina and international
schools will be established. Schools participating in ISPT  will use
their Internet access for e-mail, videoconferencing, interactive chats
and the production of World Wide Web pages if possible.  NCCIU will
provide support and training for teachers to empower them to help others

in their school and community to participate in further international
projects. NCCIU will provide World Wide Web pages for project
publications and cultural awareness resources.

The above comments are from a "canned" document.  The intent of our
program is to give students schools with limited international contact
and skills in working with the international community. We believe that
working classroom to classroom as a beginning will lead to community to
community involvement.  We have many students that believe that crossing

the state line is equivalent of going to another country.  Our state
already has almost 800 foreign-owned firms in the state and is
aggressively pursuing more..  There is a great need to have our
potential work force capable of working in an
international environment.  I would like to correspond with teachers,
administrators, or anyone who could help us form these partnerships.  We

had a trial last year with schools forming partnerships with schools in
Denmark and Norway.  These were successful trials in a very short time
period.  We would like to involve schools from around the world.  Please
contact me if you would like more information.

We are targeting high school students ages 14-18 years old, US grades
9-12.

Subject: "Green Lungs" for Novorossiysk City


            "Green Lungs" for Novorossiysk City

a project of  Yury A. Malykhin and Andrey V. Ozharovskii 
                        supported by:
* Leadership for Environment and Development Foundation (LEAD)
* International Discussion Club (IDC)

In 1994, the Novorossiysk City Administration allotted ten hectares
of town territory for the laying of an arboretum. Responsible for the
laying of this arboretum is Dr. Yury Malykhin, an environmental 
scientist,  LEAD Member. Assisting him in this project is 
Andrey Ozharovskii, president of IDC-Moscow.

Plans are to create an arboretum that is both a recreational area and
an environmental research base in this, the Russian Black Sea's large
industrial city. The present project unites practical tree planting
activities with arboretum promotion as an educational and scientific
center. The arboretum will become a place of practice for student
ecologists who study in the Novorossiysk branch of the Kuban State
Technological University. Future plans hope to incorporate the
arboretum into an international center for students' practice.

Novorossiysk is a cement city. The four largest cement plants in
Russia are located in this area, occupying less than forty square
kilometers. The arboretum will become the "green lungs" for the city 
and especially for it's new districts. Ten hectares of the trees' 
plantations are capable of delaying nearly six hundred tons of the 
dust per annum. This is nearly three percent of the total gas-dust 
surges of the Novorossiysk cement plants. While for two years efforts 
were being made to plant more than 400 trees and seedlings on the 
allotted territory, more than half of them have been destroyed. 
Regrettably, all works are conducted with enormous labor, mostly 
volunteer. 

The main idea of the project is to provide appropriate land management
and to grow "city green lungs" for future generations.

Detailed project description in English and Russian as well 
as the progress reports and some site photos are available 
at: "Arboretum in Novorossiysk Web Site" -

Subject: NCCIU- International School Partnerships through Technology


I am working this summer with the North Carolina Center for
International Understanding to develop their International School
Partnerships through Technology program.  Part of the funding for this
project is from the Soros Foundation.  Our obligation is include schools
in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union in the partnerships.
Please share this announce and request for partners with teachers and
schools that have internet access (e-mail only is acceptable), interest
in international communication, and the ability to communicate in
English. (Sorry about that last requirement!)

I will attending the International Conference on Technology in Education
in Oslo, Norway in August and would be very interested in meeting any
K-12 (Kindergarten to 12th grade) educators that will be there.

Purpose of the Program: To create opportunities for rural North Carolina

teachers and students to use telecommunication technology to interact
directly with teachers and students from other countries.  The
International School Partnerships through Technology (ISPT) will provide

opportunities to use technology and to learn from international
counterparts by establishing school-to-school, classroom-to-classroom
partnerships by designing international projects to meet local needs.

Reason for the Program: To prepare North Carolina students to compete in

today's global marketplace.  To face this challenge, students will need
to build relevant competencies, such as language skills, technology
skills, respect for different cultures, ability to communicate across
cultures, and ability to understand events in other countries and their
impact on the U.S. and North Carolina.

Objectives of the Program: To bring international contact by the use of
telecommunications to North Carolina students and teachers. NCCIU will
identify schools in rural areas with an interest in forming
international school partnerships. Priority placement will be given to
high schools.    A network for finding North Carolina and international
schools will be established. Schools participating in ISPT  will use
their Internet access for e-mail, videoconferencing, interactive chats
and the production of World Wide Web pages if possible.  NCCIU will
provide support and training for teachers to empower them to help others

in their school and community to participate in further international
projects. NCCIU will provide World Wide Web pages for project
publications and cultural awareness resources.

The above comments are from a "canned" document.  The intent of our
program is to give students schools with limited international contact
and skills in working with the international community. We believe that
working classroom to classroom as a beginning will lead to community to
community involvement.  We have many students that believe that crossing

the state line is equivalent of going to another country.  Our state
already has almost 800 foreign-owned firms in the state and is
aggressively pursuing more..  There is a great need to have our
potential work force capable of working in an
international environment.  I would like to correspond with teachers,
administrators, or anyone who could help us form these partnerships.  We

had a trial last year with schools forming partnerships with schools in
Denmark and Norway.  These were successful trials in a very short time
period.  We would like to involve schools from around the world.  Please
contact me if you would like more information.

We are targeting high school students ages 14-18 years old, US grades
9-12.

Subject: "Green Lungs" for Novorossiysk City


            "Green Lungs" for Novorossiysk City

a project of  Yury A. Malykhin and Andrey V. Ozharovskii 
                        supported by:
* Leadership for Environment and Development Foundation (LEAD)
* International Discussion Club (IDC)

In 1994, the Novorossiysk City Administration allotted ten hectares
of town territory for the laying of an arboretum. Responsible for the
laying of this arboretum is Dr. Yury Malykhin, an environmental 
scientist,  LEAD Member. Assisting him in this project is 
Andrey Ozharovskii, president of IDC-Moscow.

Plans are to create an arboretum that is both a recreational area and
an environmental research base in this, the Russian Black Sea's large
industrial city. The present project unites practical tree planting
activities with arboretum promotion as an educational and scientific
center. The arboretum will become a place of practice for student
ecologists who study in the Novorossiysk branch of the Kuban State
Technological University. Future plans hope to incorporate the
arboretum into an international center for students' practice.

Novorossiysk is a cement city. The four largest cement plants in
Russia are located in this area, occupying less than forty square
kilometers. The arboretum will become the "green lungs" for the city 
and especially for it's new districts. Ten hectares of the trees' 
plantations are capable of delaying nearly six hundred tons of the 
dust per annum. This is nearly three percent of the total gas-dust 
surges of the Novorossiysk cement plants. While for two years efforts 
were being made to plant more than 400 trees and seedlings on the 
allotted territory, more than half of them have been destroyed. 
Regrettably, all works are conducted with enormous labor, mostly 
volunteer. 

The main idea of the project is to provide appropriate land management
and to grow "city green lungs" for future generations.

Detailed project description in English and Russian as well 
as the progress reports and some site photos are available
