Responding to the desire of teachers to incorporate technology in the classroom and the growing popularity of laptop computers among students, the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) has created a new web-based resource to help educators incorporate laptops into K-12 science, math, and technology instruction. The site features lesson plans from the 20 winning entries in the 1999 Toshiba/NSTA Laptop Learning Challenge grant program, which can be used as models for innovative laptop learning projects. In addition to the winning lesson plans, the site includes tips for teaching with laptops and suggests ways that educators can use laptop learning methods in their professional development programs as well.
