I have designed this seminar to provide you with practical strategies, ideas, suggestions, and activities for using technology to strengthen and enhance your instruction. You will discover a wealth of exemplary Internet sites. I will share with you ready-to-use project planning tools, a variety of timesaving tips for integrating technology into your teaching, and assessment strategies that are realistic. You will also leave with easy-to-use Web sites and resources to create newsletters, puzzles, worksheets, rubrics, and certificates.

I am looking forward to meeting you at the seminar for a day filled with practical, classroom-proven strategies to help your students develop a greater knowledge of information skills as well as ways to use the Internet to enhance and strengthen their skills in reading, science, math, social studies, and language arts.
