LCSI RELEASES Journal Zone for the MAC

Montreal, October 17, 2002 - Logo Computer Systems Inc. (LCSI) today announced the release of its Macintosh version of the award-winning software - Journal Zone. This online tool for reflective collaboration is a cross-curricular product designed for grades 3 and up. Journal Zone, the newest innovation from LCSI represents a breakthrough in educational computing.

"We're really excited about the new Macintosh version of Journal Zone. Now even Mac users will have the opportunity to bring journal writing and collaboration into their classrooms. " said Michael A. Quinn, President of LCSI.

Journal ZoneT is predominantly a "journal" that supports reflective learning within a social context. As a classroom tool, Journal ZoneT integrates three common practices of exemplary teaching -journal writing, collaboration, and scaffolding. The distinctive tools provided in Journal Zone support individual and group learning by helping students in planning, reflecting and in commenting effectively on the work of others.

As a collaborative tool, Journal ZoneT may be used as a journal for thinking about and discussing a project, to create a project presentation, or as both a journal and the presentation. The product works well either in a lab or within classroom based computers. The software is comprised of a graphics, journal text and comments area. The text area may be plans, reflections or the project information itself. The comments area allows students to comment on journal entries of others or even respond to someone else's comments. In the graphics area, students can present their ideas visually, using objects, backgrounds and animation. The Macintosh version of Journal Zone is available in English only.
