Overview
 
My students waste lots of class time searching the Internet for information.
It's hard to find quality web resources for children and teens.
I'm looking for a few good websites to get my students started with class projects.
 
If these frustrations sound familiar, it's time to examine ways to use the Internet more effectively and efficiently in your classroom. This book provides ways to extend, expand, and enhance your learning environment by identifying key themes and matching web resources and technology-rich activities. You'll find over 50 topics in the book and many more at our website (http://eduscapes.com/42explore). Each topic contains an easy and more difficult description, four good web starting points, activity ideas, word lists, and many more links and resources for students and teachers. Unfortunately, we haven't covered every topic in your curriculum ...yet. The book will help you revise existing materials and develop your own web resource similar to our 42eXplore pages.
