SchoolLink creates web-based, interactive multimedia professional development modules that support team-oriented professional development in schools. This demonstration serves two purposes: to present SchoolLink's latest module, created in collaboration with a school in southern California, but more specifically to highlight the implementation stages of the project as illustrated by the creation of our next module in Hawaii. Both modules are focused on multilingual and multicultural issues-- issues teachers encounter in classrooms throughout this country everyday. Students are selected for the focus of the study because they represent a larger population of students that have historically demonstrated low performance in academics. The implications of the technology and capacity-building inherent in this model of professional development allows for widespread implementation in California, Hawaii, and potentially other states.
