Searching for Curriculum

Instructional Time: 30 minutes

Firefox is the best Browser to use for this course.  If you don’t have Firefox on your computer you can download it (for free) at: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/.  This will take a few minutes.

Go to I Keep Bookmarks and open an account.  This is a great place to  easily keep and organize online bookmark lists. 

Create a folder (Yellow Section) called Curriculum Sites (or any name you wish to give it) and start bookmarking the any web sites that you find useful.  As you do this start thinking about your curriculum and what unit or lesson you’d like to add a technology component to.   In this workshop you will be rewriting a unit or lesson as a WebQuest adding technology components for your students. 

Open that folder and after searching these sites collect any bookmarks for sites you think will be useful to you during this school year.

California SB2042 Induction Standards
Standard 16. Using Technology to Support Student Learning
Each participating teacher builds upon the knowledge, skills, and abilities acquired during preliminary preparation for the delivery of comprehensive, specialized use of appropriate computer-based technology to facilitate the teaching and learning processes. Each participating teacher is a fluent, critical user of technology, able to provide a relevant education and to prepare his/her students to be life-long learners in an information-based, interactive society. Each participating teacher makes appropriate and efficient use of software applications and related media to access and evaluate information, analyze and solve problems, and communicate ideas in order to maximize the instructional process. Such use of technology supports teaching and learning regardless of individual learning style, socioeconomic background, culture, ethnicity, or geographic location. Each participating teacher integrates these technology-related tools int the educational experience of students, including those with special needs.
