Using the Internet to Enhance Instruction
The Internet can be a valuable tool for instruction. It is important to take the
time to plan your lessons carefully.
- Look for ways that the Internet can be used to enhance your lesson plans. Many
times, research projects may be a good starting point.
- Begin by using Educational Search Engines to find useful information. Make a list
of sites that may be useful in helping your students meet the objectives.
- Check each site thoroughly. In addition, be sure to check each of the links.
- It is also important to check the validity of each site. Be advised that some
sites may have information that is not factual or from a credible source.
- It is often useful to create bookmarks or "jump-off" pages to assist in
focusing the instruction. This will cut down on the mistyped URL's.
- Visit each site in the computer lab prior to your lesson. As a result, the sites
will be stored in the cache and this will speed up the connection.
