Ani[SM]'s Rocket Ride: Internet Coach[R] for Early Learning. Teacher's Guide [with CD-ROM].
Brownell, Jeanine O'Nan
Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach to early learning, this CD-ROM and Teacher's Guide invite young children on a journey with Ani, a friendly alien from another planet, to collect and learn about natural objects in seven different "learning centers." The CD-ROM program is designed to encourage creativity in science, art, and dramatic play and to teach children about using the Internet in a developmentally appropriate manner. The Teacher's Guide is presented in 9 chapters. Chapter 1 discusses how to use the CD-ROM, provides a philosophical overview of the Reggio Emilia Approach, and details how the CD-ROM experiences fit into High/Scope preschool key experiences. Chapters 2 through 8 provide 21 lesson plans for integrating the CD-ROM into everyday classroom routines and leading to classroom projects matching student interest related to the following learning centers: (1) water table; (2) Internet browser table; (3) light table; (4) drama center; (5) art center; (6) balance scale; and (7) e-mail center. Each lesson plan lists the learning objectives corresponding to the High/Scope preschool key experiences, and delineates instructions and materials necessary for a teacher-guided activity, a learning center activity, and extended activities for further exploration. Chapter 9 provides additional resources. (KB)
