A Guide for Teachers who do Web-based Learning Projects

Jeff Carter posted to the National Institute for Literacy Technology discussion list on December 5, 2003 http://www.nifl.gov/nifl-technology/2003/0351.html

My comments on his post:

I just downloaded and read _Under Construction…._ “cover to cover” .
(What is the Web equivalent when you are reading a PDF — top to bottom?) It’s terrific, just what we’ve needed for teachers who want to use the Web in project-based teaching but need some guidance in how to do it.

Jeff had written:

Folks, “Under Construction: Building Web Sites as a Project-based Learning Activity for ABE/ESOL Classes,” is a new book published by World Education designed to provide adult literacy and ESOL staff developers and teachers with some simple, user-friendly tips on building Web sites as a classroom activity. Based on what we have learned over the years about developing a site in an adult education setting, each chapter discusses the major steps in the process, from planning and building a site to reviewing and testing it.

The book is also the centerpiece of the new LiteracyTech web site. In addition to the new/revamped Web publishing material, the site includes a new weblog, as well as a comments/feedback feature on many pages. Materials from our old site(s) will be migrating over soon, as we consolidate and move some things around, going back to our days as the keeper of the original Eastern LINCS hub.

The Web Projects section is essentially a Web-based expansion of the print version of the “Under Construction.” It includes all of the text from the guide plus many other additional resources.


The book is not intended to be a complete, step-by-step, “how to” manual or a technical guide to building Web pages. Instead, it’s meant to be a companion to those kinds of books, specifically directed at adult literacy and ESOL staff developers and teachers who are thinking of building Web sites as a classroom activity.


There are three ways to obtain “Under Construction:”


-Download a PDF version of the entire guide (see site for details);

-Contact us for information about ordering hard copies; and/or
-Use the Web version (http://www.literacytech.org/webpub), which includes all of the text from the printed guide plus many other additional resources.
