"It is not enough for teachers to know
how to use Internet tools like e-mail or search engines. Teachers who successfully use
telecomputing technology instead focus on the instructional design of their activities,
accommodating students' needs, preferences, and past experiences."
Dr. Judi Harris draws on research and extensive online experience to demonstrate how teachers can best become designers for Internet projects. She has designed 18 structures for successful telecomputing activities. There are three structure genres with five to seven activity structures per genre.
The following sites were "harvested" from the Internet. They correlate with the 18 structures. This project was designed as a part of a course Elementary Classroom Techniques at Midwestern State University.
