Purpose of Today's Workshop
Today's workshop will serve
as an introduction to various unique and compelling Internet resources,
particularly in the areas of science and mathematics. Participants will
learn how to get in touch with on-line experts, how to subscribe to a listserv,
how to find and participate in Internet-based collaborative projects, and
how to find keypals.
Consulting Experts in the Field
One simple way to incorporate
the Internet into classroom lessons is to utilize experts in appropriate
fields to answer your students' toughest questions.
