One way of helping high school students succeed in school may be right in their own neighborhood.

That’s the philosophy behind a partnership between the Center for Educational Technologies at Wheeling Jesuit University and Wheeling Park High School. The two institutions are teaming up on the Ohio County Neighborhood Mapping Project. Park students will use multimedia and Internet tools to create an online history and interactive map of their Wheeling neighborhood as part of the afterschool program.

Students participating in the Anchor afterschool program have access to academic tutoring services and weekly involvement in the community-mapping project. The mapping project gives students a chance to be creative, investigative and reflective regarding what they think others should know about the Wheeling are communities.

Wheeling Jesuit University is pleased to have this opportunity to work with Wheeling Park and provide field-based experiences for our future teachers.

The West Virginia Statewide Afterschool Network is part of the West Virginia University Extension Service. The Explorations program grants of up to $10,000 come from the West Virginia University Foundation as a result of a contribution from the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.

The Erma Ora Byrd Center for Educational Technologies (www.cet.edu) houses cutting-edge educational technology in its 48,000-square foot facility on the campus of Wheeling Jesuit University. It is home to the NASA-sponsored Classroom of the Future, the space agency's principal research and development center for educational technologies, and the Challenger Learning Center®, one of 47 worldwide established by the Challenger Center for Space Science in memory of the space shuttle Challenger.

The youngest of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, Wheeling Jesuit University offers students a high-quality private education. Since 1995 U.S. News & World Report has ranked Wheeling Jesuit University among the top institutions in its “Best Master’s Universities in the South” category. The campus is also home to the Robert C. Byrd National Technology Transfer Center and the Clifford M. Lewis Appalachian Institute.
