In Time
Use technology to teach.
GRADE LEVEL: Professional


In Time offers a wealth of information and research related to using informational technology to facilitate quality educational programs. Sections of the site include research on principles of learning, information processing, content standards, tenets of democracy, and teacher knowledge and behavior.
The In Time site is attractive and easy to read. Some graphs are available within the various articles to add understanding. To view the videos, RealPlayer 8 is necessary.
This site is very well organized. Top-of-page buttons generate menus to access other links. The site is organized into five major sections that make finding information easy and straightforward.
IN TIME stands for Integrating New Technologies Into the Methods of Education. This site provides research, information, and videos about integrating technology into proven research-based methods of teaching and learning. Videos show teachers integrating technology into their classrooms. Search videos by title, content area, grade level, learning element, and ten other criteria. Lesson plans are available for download. A substantial Help section is available for all sections of the site -- including downloading necessary plug-ins and accessing lesson plans. The project was funded through a three-year grant from the United States Department of Education PT3 program -- Preparing Tomorrow's Teachers to Use Technology. This site is a valuable resource for educators who want to use technology in their classrooms. The research and resources offered can move teachers along the path toward making technology an integral part of student learning processes.
