This message came through the H-Net listserv.  Thought some of you might be
interested in providing some good input to this student's questions.  (CC me
if you do.  The more information we have to inform our work the better!)

>Hi - I'm a student in the Technology in Education program at the Harvard
>School of Education.  I'm interested in investigating web resources
>primarily for K-12 history education (but other levels are welcome), and
>was hoping some of you wouldn't mind sharing some of your perspectives,
>techniques, experiences, etc.  I have several questions below which I am
>using to frame my research, but they may seem somewhat basic given the
>general level of discourse on this list, so please feel free to modify or
>add to them as necessary:
>
>What resources do you primarily look for on the web?
>(Content, Primary Sources, Lesson Plans, On-Line activities, etc.)
>
>How would you compare web resources against traditional educational
>materials? (Access, accuracy, timeliness, etc.)
>
>Are there certain resources you are more likely to look for on the web than
>in traditional sources?
>
>Do you have certain criteria for a site to fulfill?
>(State/National Frameworks, related to class project, etc.)
>
>How do you locate these resources?
>(Search Engines, Indexes/Directories, word of mouth, etc.)
>
>How do you evaluate credibility of the resources? (including the indexes
>above)
>(Bias, educational goals of the site/author, etc.)
>
>>From which sources are you more likely to use content?
>(Professional Organizations, Non-Profits, For-Profits, Government, Private,
>Schools & Universities, etc..)
>
>How do you incorporate these resources into your classroom & lesson plan?
>
>How do you structure/frame the students' use (if any) of these sites?
>(Do you give them specific instructions or assignments they must fulfill,
>etc.)
>
>How have they helped to improve your students' understanding of history &
>social studies issues?
>
>I'd be happy to hear of any other issues which have come up in your
>experiences.  Thanks for your time & consideration!
