Technology Curriculum Links
As we all know, teachers are very busy people. They do not
have a lot of time to sit and browse the web looking for teaching materials.
Here are some links that might help in that endless search of quality teaching
- Blue Web'n Learning Sites Library - Produced
by Pac Bell, this site is a treat for the classroom teacher of any subject
matter. The opening page houses a matrix showing the teacher all they offer
in terms of tutorials, activities, projects, units and lesson plans, hotlists,
etc. Each of these items is available for a whole spectrum of content areas.
Also available is a list serve that sends out weekly updates, via e-mail,
telling the teacher what new sites have been added to the existing pool. Each
entry comes with the title, address, brief description, and appropriate grade
level and subject area for each particular new site. This site covers a tremendous
amount of very useful material for teachers. I would highly recommend visiting
this site when in search of educational material.
- Education World - A tremendous wealth of education related information is housed
at this site. Lesson plans, news, curriculum, books, administration, site
reviews, and financial planning are just some of the areas covered. There
are 56,000+ Web sites in their database. Education World offers monthly education
site reviews, whose results can be e-mailed to you when complete. Each entry
comes with the site's name, address, and grade in several areas. Each evaluation
area comes with a write up justifying the grade received. Also, educators
can find other schools on-line around the world by selecting the geographic
region of their choice. Another one of those must have sites. There is so
much good stuff here that no teacher should be without this link.
- Busy Teachers' Website - No matter what area one teaches, you are bound
to find a resource or activity link at this site. The table of contents lets
a teacher click on the subject area they teach to receive a list of related
resource and activity pages for that content area. Grades levels covered:
K-12. A useful and enjoyable site, but not as thorough or stock full of materials
and information as some of the others.
- Discovery Channel School - seasonal themes offer a variety of teaching resources
for many subject areas. Each theme comes equipped with an overview, list of
programs, complete classroom activities, online links, discussion forum, and
related catalog products. A wonderful resource for any teacher to have access
