The Internet has great potential to serve as a multicultural education tool. Using websites educators can take their students for online tours of renowned museums, go on jungle safaris, visit historical sites, and experience various multicultural aspects of the world. Teachers and students can join educational chat rooms, bulletin boards, newsgroups, or email discussion groups to communicate and gain a better perspective of life in regions of the world different from their own. The impetus of this paper will be presented as a case study describing how the Internet was used to introduce students from a rural West Virginia school to students in Uganda, an interaction which ultimately resulted in the adoption of the Ugandan school by the West Virginia community.
