Ways to Use the Internet in your Classroom

Teacher Resources

A second major way to use the Internet in your classroom is as a tool to locate resources that will enable you to be a more effective teacher. One obvious type of resource would be lesson plans or activities to use with your students. The Internet can also be a valuable professional development tool by providing a highly convenient method to research general educational issues of all types.

This section provides links to an extensive collection of activities and lessons. While some of the lessons and activities are traditional, many are designed to be implemented using internet based resources. The term "WebQuest" is sometimes used for an inquiry-oriented activity that integrates the use of internet resources. You can learn more about the concept of WebQuests and how to develop your own at http://edweb.sdsu.edu/webquest/webquest.html .
