Integrating Technology into the New
Computer Integration Activities are various methods and
practices that teachers can use to integrate the use of the
Information and Communication Technologies into the curriculum. There
are two popular models of integration activities, WebQuests and
I. Integration Strategies
- Treasure/Scavenger Hunts
- The teacher creates a series of questions based on a particular topic, and
chooses sites where students can find answers. The purpose of a Treasure Hunt
could be to enhance a topic in the curriculum, to reinforce facts or information,
or to find information or material to complete an activity or a research project?

II. How to download a template, and what to do with it:
- Click on the link of the template that you wish to download -
the template will open in your browser.
- On the toolbar of your Internet browser (Internet Explorer or
Netscape Navigator), select "File" / "Save as" and a "Save in" box
- Beside where it says "Save in" select the folder in which you
wish to save the file.
- Click on "Save", and the template will be saved to the folder
that you specified.
- Open your HTML editor ( Netscape Composer, Front Page Express
etc.) and open the file that you just saved - remember that it is
in the folder that you specified in step 3.
When the template opens in your HTML editor, you can make any
additions or deletions that you wish to the page. When you are
finished, save the page to your folder changing the name to something
appropriate so that you don't erase the original template file.
