Getting Elementary Educators Caught Up in the Web.
Tate, Nancy A.
This paper describes the development and implementation of a World Wide Web training session for educators in a local elementary school. A K-12 World Wide Web Educator's listserv proved to be invaluable in obtaining suggestions for Web-based curriculum resources which K-12 educators had reviewed and evaluated. Washburn University's (Topeka, Kansas) computing lab was chosen for the hands-on training. A written reference manual was provided for the teachers to take away with them. Goals of this teacher inservice training were three-fold: (1) to provide background information on the Web and search techniques; (2) to increase the teachers' awareness of the multitude of curriculum resources already available on the Internet for K-6 educators; (3) to have the teachers create a simple Web-based activity using a Web authoring tool. The schedule of events is outlined, and teacher feedback comments and critical success factors are listed. (AEF)
