The Columbus Zoo Virtual Safari by elementary school students in Westerville Ohio is cute at first take, and quite impressive on further investigation.

Using technology builds on the understanding that learning is impacted by student-centered environments which encourage dynamic exploration and representation of information; experimentation and problem solving; social awareness and confidence; effective communication; independence, collaboration, and a positive attitude towards the future.

Consider it the contemporary book report. Though, I must wonder what will become of a generation that doesn't know the joys of paste, construction paper and those impossibly dull little scissors.
