Children's perspectives on news are presented. The context of the discussion includes computer networks, interest research, and constructionism. Projects are categorized by their relationship to children's interests in news and other topics. Fourth- and fifth-grade children's participation in news-related aspects of the NewsMaker project are presented to demonstrate the possibilities that arise when children are able to create and discuss news on line.
