4Directions focuses on integrating Native American culture and technology into education in a way that enables students to maintain and learn their heritage while taking full advantage of their future. The 4Directions consortia is achieving this through:
  • restructuring curricula through building on local cultures and values;
  • collaborating using Internet activities across sites through on-site training, on-line tutoring, and cooperative teaming;
  • creating networked "virtual communities" with Internet teleconferencing;
  • encouraging life-long learning by extending Internet access into surrounding communities;
  • maintaining and extending a network database of teaching, assessment, professional development, and student created resources organized by Goals for American Indians, Alaskan Natives and national standards; and
  • creating a research based evaluation model.
