ETHEMES: An internet instructional resource

Laura Diggs, John Wedman

Abstract

This paper describes a major initiative to support teachers in integrating Internet resources into the instructional process while shifting their instruction to a more constructivist approach. This paper also presents the background of this initiative and results of a study to determine teacher perceptions of this initiative. Referred to as eThemes, this service accepts requests from teachers, finds Web sites that meet the requirements specified in the requests, and creates an archive of quality Internet resources for easy access and searching. It minimizes teachers’ resource-seeking time and maximizes their resource-using time in their instruction to enhance teaching practice and student performance.
