Building the Digital Curriculum
You've got your computers, your link to the Web, your class full of students. Now what? For years, teachers had little reason to give this question much thought. Most didn't have any computers in their classrooms, not to mention access to the Internet. "Technology" was something their students did once a week in a lab.
Now, there's no escaping the all-important question of what to put on those computers. Increasingly, educators are recognizing that they need to focus on what kinds of computer-based learning resources, or "digital content," they should use in their classrooms.
Now that most classrooms have at least one computer, educators are focusing on what "digital content" they should put on them.
Complicating matters is the fact that many teachers lack the time and training they need to make the best use of digital content.
