Abstract

Schoolteachers are still confused with ICT education in Japan. Teachers who have already practiced ICT education and have practical know-how should be delivered to assist ordinary teachers. We developed and distributed the useful materials for practice of Japanese ICT education through the website "FATHeRS". We had run it as a pavilion in Japanese Internet Fair 2001. Consequently, the website obtained a lot of accesses of about 9,000 page views per a day. The mainly used contents were "Everyday Digital Camera Map" and "ICT quiz" for students. In the materials for teachers, "the Collection of Practical Illustrations," "One Point Advice" and "Let's Try ICT Education" were often accessed. "FATHeRS" is the only website distributes such materials systematically for schools in Japan. So, "FATHeRS" was thought advisable and won many prizes in ICT education area.
