The Technology Infusion ToolKit 2000, from Innovative Designs for Education (IDE), asks teachers to define their teaching styles and explores ways in which they might use technology. The ToolKit includes a virtual Toolbox of resources with 100 problem-based tasks to use in the K-12 program; a data bank of hardware and software information; a glossary of terms; videoclips from classrooms; and quotes from relevant books and journal articles. It can serve as yearlong professional development, the basis of an in-service course, an instructional resource, or the text for college teacher-prep courses.
