Research demonstrates that lesson planning can be a highly inefficient process for teachers. This project team is developing a prototype of MyEdna, a web-based personal assistant that provides elementary school teachers easy and fast ways to search, save, and share high quality on-line educational resources. Pilot research at the end of Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned and teachers can efficiently and effectively use the website to integrate materials within classroom practice.
