Technologies Project (LTP) is part of a government-wide initiative
called the High Performance Computing and Communications Program
(HPCCP). The Program's goal is to maintain the United States'
competitiveness and leadership in the global computer technologies
market. One way the Program strives to meet this goal is to ensure
the continued availability of a highly technically trained workforce.
The summer workshops are conducted in order to foster increased
proficiency and use of computer technology within K-12 schools.
As a part
of our summer workshops, participants are required to create activities
that can be used in a K-12 classroom. Participants are required
to create Web pages using computer applications that the participants
learn in the workshops and to give a presentation at the end of
the workshops about their activities.
of the summer workshops are:
- To provide
computer training to teachers and to help them integrate computer
technology into the classroom.
- To apply
the skills learned through the computer training to create classroom
Web pages are grouped by the year in which they were created (1999,
1998). Teachers may submit revisions and additions to their activities
after the workshops have concluded.
