Connecting Learning & Technology for Effective Lesson Plan Design.
Seamon, Mary P.
This paper focuses on the design of effective lesson plans using the Internet. Effective lesson design helps students to explore ideas, acquire and synthesize information, and frame and solve problems. The creative problem solving which depends upon context, interrelationships, and real-world activities is available through Internet projects. Communication among schools, home, and community will increase with collaborative projects. The paper explores a multi-level, interdisciplinary problem solving scope and sequence for integrating technology into the curriculum. This framework depends on a multi-tiered conceptual framework. The framework helps teachers visualize how the World Wide Web can be incorporated into a class where students are at various levels of ability in using computers. The structure can be summarized in five steps: (1) learn to search; (2) create a hotlist; (3) create a guided tour; (4) create an HTML file; and (5) post your Web Page. Conceptual frameworks are also presented for guided tours, scavenger hunts, Internet discoveries, CyberInquiries, and WebQuests. An annotated list of Web sites for lesson plans and additional resources is included. (Author/AEF)
