Internet4classrooms is a Teacher Driven Site

What does " teacher driven site" mean?

Our site was created while Bill and I were both tech coordinators working beside teachers who needed help with technology resources. If they needed a resource, it was put on a site where all the other teachers could see the resource and use it in their classrooms also. As a result of this, teacher requests drove the site to become what it is today.


Today we receive many emails daily from teachers asking for resources on various topics. We do everything we can to help find these resources for their classroom needs. We post them on the site so that other teachers who teach the same concept can benefit from that teacher's request. Many new areas of the site were developed because of teacher requests.

Internet4classrooms' mission is finding the best free concept specific Internet resources available to assist teachers in their job.

If you have a need that we are not meeting, please do write and request resources for the concept you are working on in your class. We would love to help you out. By helping you out , we will also assist thousands of other teachers.

Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement over the years. We will continue as we embark on our new redesigned site to meet your needs and your students’ needs.

  2. Hello,

    I love the internet4classrooms site. However, for the past few days, I am no longer able to to access the site, regardless of the computer I use. I get the message:

    You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'UKPYOLSI', 'SEOUL')' at line 1

    I have no idea what that is talking about, as I used to always just go to internet4classrooms.com and it would work fine. Please let me know if there is a solution to this problem. I am based out of Seoul, South Korea, so I hope I'm not blocked from using the site because I'm out of region or something. That was the only reason I could think of.

    Send reply to saramenegoni@gmail.com . I would hugely appreciate it!

    Thanks,
    Sara
