    Materials and Resources

        In developing our lessons and activities, we made some assumptions about the hardware and software that would be available in the classroom for teachers who visit the LETSNet Website. We assume that teachers using our Internet-based lessons or activities have a computer with the necessary hardware components (mouse, keyboard, and monitor) as well as a World Wide Web browser. In the section below, we specify any "special" hardware or software requirements for a lesson or activity (in addition to those described above) and the level of Internet access required to do the activity.

    1. Special hardware requirements: None.
    2. Special software requirements: None.
    3. Internet access: A medium-speed or higher connection.
    4. Human Resources:
      • Knowledgeable "community members" who may have personal connections to the foreign exchange country. These community members could live in the local school area and visit the school in person. Students and faculty at colleges or universities might also be "virtual community" members and correspond electronically.
      • Students in the foreign exchange school.
    5. Library Resources: Familiar references such as encylopedias or more specialized books about the country.
