Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
Dr. Yvonne Marie Andres is the President, CEO and co-founder of the Global SchoolNet Foundation. She is a former Vice President of Internet Learning Programs and Partnerships at Lightspan.com and the creator of the Global Schoolhouse. An educator for nearly two decades, Dr. Andres has taught pre-school through university and is dedicated to discovering, demonstrating, and documenting the power of "Internet style learning." Andres has also designed and taught many courses, including "Hello Internet," "Managing Global Learning Projects," "Designing On-line Courses," and "Creating Effective Educational Websites." Ms. Andres' activities include promoting and facilitating exciting and innovative Internet learning projects, including International CyberFair.

Dr. Andres has been champion of instructional telecommunications since 1984, as an electronic bulletin board sysop and project director for various networks including the AT&T Learning Network, CORE (California Online Resources in Education) Network, CERFnet (California Education and Research Federation) and the FrEdMail Network. She has provided leadership and training in educational telecommunications at conferences and workshops throughout the U.S., Canada, Asia, Europe, Australia, South America and Africa. She also designed a pilot interactive Internet video project with ABC World News Now.

In 1988, she co-authored "TeleSensations: The Educators' Handbook to Instructional TeleComputing" and for seven years served as the editor of an international newsletter focusing on collaborative telecomputing projects. She has helped develop hundreds of successful online projects, two of which were selected as model telelessons by the California Educational Technology Committee. Dr. Andres has written dozens of articles, is the winner of the 1989 Computer Learning Month's Telecommunications Lesson Plan contest and is featured on the cover of the May 1990 Teaching and Computers with some students in "Telecommunicating from Sea to Shining Sea."

Dr. Andres developed and coordinated the original Global Schoolhouse Project, electronically bringing together students from schools in Knoxville, Tennessee, Arlington, Virginia, Oceanside, California, and London, England. Students, grades 5 through 8, conducted an environmental study of watershed pollution and shared their findings via state-of-the-art video conferencing using desktop computers and the Internet. The project was expanded to include twenty schools in 12 states who used the Internet to study alternative energy sources, space exploration, natural disasters, and waste management.

In 1992 Andres authored, "CERF'n Safari: An Educators' Guide to the Internet," the very first teacher's Internet guide! In September 1994 Dr. Andres accepted an appointment to the Governor's Information Technology Council for the State of California, where she helped author "Getting Results." Andres is also a co-author of "Going to School on the Internet" (a publication of Cisco Systems) and "Harnessing the Power of the Web for Classroom Use: A Tutorial." Dr. Andres authored Apple's "Getting Started on the Internet." In 1996 Ms. Andres was selected as a Woman of Merit and in 1997 as one of the 100 most influential people in U.S. public education. In 1999 Ms. Andres was named one of the 30 most influential people, nationwide, in education technology by eSchool News.
