What's on the Web? Sorting Strands of the World Wide Web for Educators (2005)

Originally published in 1995, this article was revised most recently in 2005, and appears here for archival purposes.

The author wrote the article as a starting point for teachers who want to integrate the Internet into their curricula, offering them a means to classify and define useful aspects of the online world. He sets out a variety of types of applications available, and provides examples of each.

While the content of the article is dated, some of the advice it offers is still well worth remembering. For instance, the author cautions teachers to check sites before letting students browse them.

He also points out that the Internet offers a great deal of information, but that information is not valuable unless there is an educator to facilitate its use in a classroom.
