has been a great resource for both teachers and students at the
Upper Grand District School Board. With only one install at our
Board's web server we quickly deployed Studentlink.
Monthly updates are done in minutes. Due to the intuitive layout of
Studentlink we found that there was no
need to train our staff. Simply making it available and mentioning it
in newsletters made Studentlink an
overnight hit with teachers."

Upper Grand District School Board
In the past ten years,
StudentLink has been adopted by hundreds of thousands of elementary school students
in thirty-four Ontario school boards. Comments about StudentLink are coming in from educators
across the province. Here are just a few...
I love it! My students love it!
What a great way to utilize our

Peterborough, Victoria, Northumberland, Clarington C.D.S.B.
|"Safety on-line is
certainly one of the many advantages of using the
Internet menu system. By guiding students to appropriate sites quickly and
easily they have little opportunity or reason to wander aimlessly on the
Internet and find questionable sites. I highly recommend the StudentLink
Internet Menu system. Our school will gladly pay the 395.00 (school site
license) for the use of this system."
John Baker, Information
Technology Teacher, Hamilton-Wentworth D.S.B.
|I started using the
internet in 1996. In all that time I have never seen an organization put
together such a fantastic collection of curriculum-relevant links. I
have been promoting your Studentlink
product to every teacher I know. Keep up the great work!
Grade Six Teacher, Upper Grand District School Board
"StudentLink is indeed
a godsend for our staff and students. The comment I get from teachers is the same: "This really helps me in my units because
I don't have a lot of resources to use".
In the past month I have worked with students from grade one to grade eight on SL with
excellent results. I
can't thank you enough for your vision and hard work. I even demonstrated this to parents so they can see how the internet is useful to
students. They were impressed!"
Roman Caruk, Computer
Resource Teacher, H.W.C.D.S.B.
|"StudentLink has saved me
hours of searching for curriculum - based, student - friendly web sites.
It is geared toward the new curriculum, therefore subject matter is relevant
to all subject areas. I love it!"
M. Kelly, Grade Two Teacher
definitely gives grade one kids a faster route to find sites. My kids
were accustomed to it very well by the second time they used
Jamie Thiers, Grade One Teacher
|"Wow! Just a paragraph?
StudentLink has been a resource I wouldn't
want to do without. Its connection to the curriculum makes it an academic
tool that the students appreciate. It's "one-stop shopping" for research,
so to speak.
As a teacher, I have found it invaluable both as a resource for my students
and myself. If I want to find some information on a Science strand (ie.,
Earth's Crust), I can go to a variety of levels to come up with innovative
ideas and pertinent, age-level information. StudentLink is an academic
link to success. Kudos to Jim Finan for his work in creating this!"
T. K. Sheppard, Grade Seven
is a valuable tool to encourage students to read and research using the
Internet. Assignments are easy to design using four or five succinct
directions which direct students to icons, labels or colours. Reading
ability is levelled according to grades. Internet sites are designed to
support (Ontario) curriculum expectations. I have found this menu system
easy for students to navigate. As a result, students are enthusiastic and
motivated to learn on the computer.Since web sites are continually
updated I'm assured of quality, current research material which has been
field tested by other teachers and students."
Debra Chitra, Grade Three
has proven advantageous in my grade six classroom. It saves quality
computer time because it accesses curriculum specific activities
promptly and accurately. Because "searching" time is saved, the students'
time on task increases and precious research is accomplished. The
Internet can be a valuable resource tool, but when used in conjunction with
StudentLink, it successfully makes learning easier and faster."
Margot Jacobs, Grade Six
StudentLink was very helpful in supplementing the curriculum.
There are many interesting and relevant activities for all areas of
the curriculum, and for many specific areas of study. It is easy to
navigate and well organized. I recommend everyone take the time to
check it out!"
