To make instructional resources that educators can use in their classrooms more accessible and downloadable, we have created Archive.edu. This Web site will serve as a storehouse of instructional materials on a variety of topics that educators can easily access. But more than just another Web site, Archive.edu is a location where educators will have permission to download any of the materials. These materials can be used as they are, or customized and incorporated into other instructional projects.
The design and development of Archive.edu is based upon interviews with educators and students who have expressed an interest in locating educational materials on the Web and plan to use this resource. The prospective audience for Archive.edu includes preservice and inservice K-12 teachers and technology coordinators, university faculty and students, and others interested in educational materials. The Web site has begun with a series of content areas or "vaults" that include resources for Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts,Multicultural Education and Technology, among others.
Within each vault, the following materials are available:
Tutorials and instructional guides for developing technology resources will maintain a strong presence on Archive.edu. A variety of research materials will be included in the archive. Doctoral dissertations, Master's theses, and scholarly articles that deal with the use of technology in education will be collected and categorized. In this way, a broad perspective on the use of new media by educators will be available in one common area on the Web.
Educators are invited to submit their own instructional materials and that of their students to Archive.edu to share with other technology-using educators.
