Use of technology in the classroom can enhance teaching and learning. Use of the Internet can generate a sense of community among learners, whether they are in the same class or separated by thousands of miles. Here are some exemplary projects created for Texas schools that show what imaginative teachers and administrators can do with existing technology.
Please select a Texas school site from the pull-down menu.
More success stories...www.4teachers.org has a collection of "Teacher Testimonies" about using technology for teaching and learning, some in English and some in Spanish. Here's a good way to learn about what works and what doesn't.
Power Educators Project is an outreach and dissemination page reflecting
the best efforts of Colorado teachers who have participated in the Enhancing
Education Through Technology (EETT) grant program. The site contains
descriptions, planning documents, presentations, lesson plans, student
products, and evaluations.
A word of wisdom...
If you try to separate "computer class" from the rest of the curriculum, students might learn "computer", but the real goal should be to teach them to use it as a tool, just like pencil and paper, crayons, calculators, and so forth.
