Abstract

There are now more than 42 million people worldwide with access to global electronic mail. Many of these millions are subject matter specialists whose knowledge encompasses a wide spectrum of expertise. What if “matches” could be made so that volunteers from among this group could communicate directly with K-12 students and teachers who are studying about these experts'specialties? This article discusses lessons learned from The Electronic Emissary Project, an internet-based interpersonal resource that matches teachers to experts in different disciplines.
