Tap into professional development with “Teacher Tap”


The Teacher Tap is a free, online professional development resource that helps educators address common technology integration questions by providing practical, web-based resources and activities. Each project page focuses on an interesting topic and provides common questions, background information, useful web sites, and hands-on activities. Project pages are divided into four areas: teacher resources, learning resources, collaboration, and software utilities. The site’s primary audience consists of teachers, library media specialists, and technology coordinators who need starting points for integrating technology into their classrooms. Some topics are more logical for beginners, while others target more advanced technology users. For example, a teacher with few internet experiences might be interested in exploring simple online lesson plans. A more experienced teacher might explore the creation of an online quiz or WebQuest. Two new topics are added to the site each month and are updated frequently.
