Description [Washington D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1999 
11 p. 

One of the issues surrounding the successful integration of technology into teaching practices is teachers' lack of time to develop or modify lesson plans, units, or curricula to incorporate technology. The Education Forum Web site, http: // rum, developed as a project for a graduate course on educational computing at Concordia University (Quebec), was created to solve this problem by: (1) saving teachers the time and frustration it takes to do a general search for technology lesson plans; (2) saving teachers time by evaluating the lessons and only including instructionally sound lesson plans; and (3) saving teachers time by pre-categorizing technology lesson plans according to subject matter area, in order to facilitate the choosing of technology-based lesson plans. The overall organization of the site includes links to many teacher information resources, search engines, and technology-based lesson plans. The lesson plan page constitutes a major focus of the site and is divided into Language Arts, Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, Art, Music, and Foreign Language, specifically targeted for K-12 teachers. The Education Forum was included as a resource in an inservice teacher workshop on basic principles of effective incorporation of technology into teaching practices. Examples of Educational Forum pages are appended. (DLS)
