This research project is a study of education, out-migration of young adults, and the impact of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) on the education and economies of rural communities in Newfoundland and Labrador. A qualitative study of Newfoundland and Labrador's rural schools were conducted from January to August 2001. This report is organized into six chapters. Chapter One provides the introduction and the background of the study, including the methodology. Chapter Two examines how curriculum is organized in Newfoundland and Labrador. This background information is necessary in order to understand the discussion of specific curriculum areas in Chapters Three and Four. Chapter Three focuses specifically on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the schools, paying particular attention to its impact on small rural schools. Chapter Four explores the relationship between community economic development and the school curriculum. Chapter Five focuses on teacher training and continuing education. Chapter Six is a summary and conclusion, with lessons learned. Appended are: (A) Reports and Recommendations Concerning the Newfoundland and Labrador Education System; (B) Regional Economic Development Boards and their Regions; (C) Partnership Details; (D) Needs of Stem~Net Stakeholder Groups; (E) Grassroots Projects; (F) Course Descriptions for Senior High Economic/Enterprise Education; and (G) Education Courses Available by Distance Memorial University of Newfoundland.
