NC WiseOwl: LEARN North Carolina:
NC WISE OWL is a Web site that has, as its centerpiece, several subscription databases. InfoTrac, a periodical database product by the Gale Group, is made up of a Kids Edition for elementary students, a Junior Edition for middle schoolers, and both the Student Edition and InfoTrac Gold Reference Edition for the high school and parent community. Grolier Online offers 2 encyclopedias: The New Book of Knowledge for elementary and middle school students, and Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia for middle and high school students. Additionally, Gale’s DISCovering Authors: Most Studied, a database featuring information about 392 of the most studied authors in the middle and high school curricula, is included. LEARN NC, the Learners' and Educators' Assistance and Resource Network of North Carolina, is a statewide network of educators using Internet technologies to deliver professional development opportunities and learning resources that increase student achievement, enhance teacher proficiencies, and foster community participation in the educational process. The links below will take you to more detailed information about who and what we are, where we're going, and how you can get involved.
