A great starting point for any teacher beginning their unit and lesson planning is the 42explore link on this website. This is a marvelous collection of topics for K-12 students. Each week new topics are posted and previous topics are listed alphabetically and according to the date it was posted.
What I particularly like about the 42explore link is the authors’ understanding of the nature of the Internet, the needs of teachers and students. The “four” in the title rhymes with “explore”. The four also stands for four websites on a particular topic, because sometimes websites go down, content changes or it’s just too slow. With four sites for teachers and students to access, chances are the information and resources will be available. There’s nothing more frustrating to teachers and students when the key website for your topic and project isn’t available anymore! With four to explore, the learning experiences for teachers and students will be a positive one.
This site also offers the Lamb's Technology Integration section. This invaluable section provides resources for parents, teachers, library/media specialists, administrators, and technology coordinators. Here can be found materials for workshops or for teacher’s own professional development.
Highly recommended are the following two links: Lamb’s Cool Starting Points for Teachers, Parents and Children and Seven Simple Starters: Realistic Internet Integration. The following seven questions are asked and answered: “What can I do daily or weekly? How can I connect to each subject area? What project would help me reach outside my classroom? How can I promote learning through technology? How can technology help students solve problems? How can my students share their projects with others? How can we use technology to create smiles?”
Head over to this site to find the answers to the above questions!
