This notebook is a compilation of 51 lesson plans for grades K-6 written by various authors and focusing on the integration of technology into the curriculum. Lesson plans include topics such as online versus traditional card catalog, exploring the technology in the media center, electronic encyclopedias and CD- ROMs, using and producing a video in the classroom, and many other topics. Appropriate grade level is indicated for each lesson plan. Reproducible activity forms follow many lesson plans.
