Educational technology is a tool that can be used to support both curriculum development and the efficient delivery of relevant instruction. However, it must be incorporated into the educational environment as both a tool for learning and as a resource if teachers are to prepare students to successfully meet the challenges of the future. One such tool that physical education teachers can use to help them plan, develop, and implement their curriculum is the Internet. The Internet has become increasingly popular for teachers searching for unit and lesson plan resources. Most state education agencies encourage the use of this technology as many of their web sites include pages devoted to lesson plan ideas aligned with their own standards. Multiple unit and lesson plan web sites are available for physical education teachers on the Internet. This article provides physical education teachers with: (1) a list of Internet web sites that can be used as resources during planning, teaching, and assessment of student performances; (2) suggestions on how to use the Internet more efficiently; and (3) information on how to create a personal or departmental web site. (Contains 7 tables and 2 figures.)
