Today's workshop will focus on using the Internet
in the study of meteorology. You will begin with an review of the types
and sources of weather information necessary for forecasting the weather.
You will examine the instruments that are used to gather weather data.
Then you will see how such weather information is displayed on weather
maps and as real time data. You will then consider and discuss how information
from Internet sites can be integrated into your curriculum. Finally, you
will examine a variety of weather related web sites that may be useful
to you in teaching weather. As a result of this workshop, you will be prepared
to implement Internet based meteorology resources in your classrooms and
to assist fellow teachers in doing so.
