The Journey Inside℠
A fascinating look at the world of computers
The Journey Inside℠ is a collection of 35 interactive, online lessons for students to learn about technology, computers, and society. Many of the lessons utilize interactive, media-rich Flash* activities, virtual field trips, and videos demonstrating the ideas discussed to guide students to an increased understanding of the world of technology. Students, teachers, and anyone interested can work on the lessons and activities at their own pace to complete any or all of the six sections: Introduction to Computers, Circuits and Switches, Digital Information, Microprocessors, The Internet, and Technology and Society. Detailed instructional strategies written for the teacher extend the lessons and key concepts in the classroom.
There is no need to register. The curriculum is available for free, from any computer that is connected to the Internet. Students can work on the lessons from the classroom, during free moments, or even from home.
"The Journey Inside℠ lessons are more customizable than textbooks, and they are interactive and interesting without security risks. I love the activities that let the students discover or apply information they just learned."
—Lisa Stamper, Middle School Teacher
