Header: Computer Applications Lesson Plans

This page is dedicated to any and all computer and technology teachers who wish to find ideas that can be used in their own classrooms. Some of these plans might be appropriate for use in other content area classes. These online plans follow a standard lesson plan outline, but a teacher may want to choose from one or more sections of the lessons themselves. Be sure when utilizing computer based lessons to have your students save often, in the advent of a computer malfunction no amount of RAID data recovery can get back a file that was never saved.

One lesson plan may contain a number of activities, and one plan may be implemented over a number of days, almost as though it were a "unit plan." When possible, quizzes and answer may be posted for your use as well.

 It is my sincere hope that you might be able to use some of these ideas. If you wish to collaborate with me and my classes on any one project, just send me an e-mail message, and we'll see if our students might be able to join forces. Such collaborative projects might take the following formats:

  • Essay exchange on an agreed-upon topic.
  • Real-time chat session on issues of the lesson.
  • Web page development and critique.
  • Viewing a common video and exchanging reviews or ideas.
  • Digitized photo and essay exchange.

Below is an index of lessons as they are posted to the site with the most recent first. The file names are by date, but if you want to save the entire lesson, you can rename the file when saving it to your own computer by going to the "file" menu, then "save as." at the top of your browser. You can also use the "copy" and "paste" commands to select sections of text to insert into your own word processor as you develop your plans. It's OK -- you have my permission to copy! If you find something you can use, just say "thanks" by letting others know about our web site! And be sure to let me know how things go!

Take care,
