Pamela Choate has assumed Dr. Bonnie Tenenbaum’s position as “Head Librarian” for K12IRC, and we’ve launched a new version of the website!
This is Pamela’s welcome letter to everyone.
Welcome to the new and updated version of K12IRC.org!!
Today, the K-12 Internet Resource Center catalogs over 2,700 web and video resources. Plus, over 100 lesson plan resources.
I have been in education for 30 years, both in K-12 and higher education. What I have discovered is that time is a precious commodity for teachers. There is never enough time to research the Internet for lesson plans, activities, resources, and technology tools to enhance the curriculum and engage students.
Today, the Internet is flooded with educational materials and topics. Plus, technology changes daily!! The goal of K12IRC.org is to make it easier for you by providing a one-stop area for a variety of lesson plans that you can incorporate into your class today.
Dive in. Click on Lesson Plans. Do a search or peruse the topic buttons on the homepage. Find a lesson plan or video you can show your class tomorrow. Students can find learning games to remediate or improve their learning. Families can find current information on how to help educate their children.
Again, welcome back. Share with your colleagues about our website. Go join our Facebook page. I look forward to this new journey with you. Stay tuned for more information about K12IRC.org.
