The CITEd website is designed to help teachers, administrators, technology coordinators, and professional development coordinators identify existing education technlogy resources (Learn), implement professional development programs to improve the implementation of technology in education (Act), and locate relevant research on educational practices using technology (Research). The following pointers will help you take full advantage of the tools and features of this site.
CITEd has reviewed hundreds of education technology resources from across the Web and organized them all on this site. The resources, from lesson plans and case studies to articles and guidebooks, are all organized according to common educator roles, job responsibilities, and topics of interest. To begin reviewing the resources available through this site, visit the Learn Center and select your role. Then select the job responsibility where you think technology could help or the topic of greatest interest to you. Keep reading this page to see what else you can do with the resources you find.
