This investigation consists of integrating the use of the World Wide Web into an introductory elementary education curriculum course for preservice teachers. The preservice teachers are being prepared to construct interdisciplinary units by effectively using the Web to gather global information. By preparing this unit, preservice teachers will develop a more in-depth knowledge base of different cultures, which will be represented by future students. At the same time, the preservice teachers will be able to increase student cultural/ethnic pride by studying various regions of origin using the Web as a tool to gather current information. The intent of this study is to increase preservice teacher comfort level with computer usage, especially accessing the Web. The Web will be a tool to be used to access resources to be incorporated into the everyday classroom. The intent of these activities is to encourage preservice teachers to become comfortable using computers and the Web for everyday classroom usage. Computers will be thought of as tools, rather than another topic area to be mastered.
