  • NYState Technology Plans This web site is an attempt to create an "archive" of lesson plans, ideas, suggestions, etc. which meet both of the criteria: The lessons must incorporate the use of technology & The lessons must address specific New York State Learning Standards.
  • Florida's Sunshine State Standards It connects standard benchmarks to on-line lesson plans. By word of mouth, its use is steadily spreading across the state, and the university used this site often to highlight community services that it is doing. Grad assistants add a couple hundred more lesson plans to the database every term. And, the lesson plans gleaned from assignements FGCU's faculty assign in their classes can be added to the database whenever. I also have been approaching ed. software venders saying - " give me some free software and I will have students write lesson plans using your software and publish the lesson plans on the website. More possibilities exist. Patrick Greene, Florida Gulf Coast University

    Learning to SEARCH the Web

    Web presence:

    Why would a teacher want a web presence:

      1. A teacher's homework or general information page ("commercial site") can be updated without any software other than a browser.
      2. Updating via the web is platform independent.
      3. Editing via the web does not require an FTP client.
      4. There is no software to purchase.
      5. Teachers can easily update their site 24/7.
      6. There are fewer security issues.
