Can I use the Voyages Through Time Curriculum on both a PC and a Mac?
Yes, the curriculum is browser based, so as long as you have a browser, such as Netscape or Explorer, you can use the curriculum. Please see Technical Requirements for more specific information.
I have a computer in my classroom, but I don't have internet access. Can I still use Voyages Through Time?
Yes, Voyages Through Time is a self-contained CD-ROM that includes all lessons, activities, and media. As long as you have a browser, such as Netscape or Explorer, you can access the entire curriculum. Please see Technical Requirements for more specific information.
I have students with special needs in my classroom. Is this curriculum accessible to them?
Yes, the Voyages Through Time Curriculum conforms to the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 508. For more information about using VTT with special needs students, please see Accessibility
I teach a biology class, so I can't use the whole curriculum. Can I order just the modules that apply to biology, such as Hominid Evolution, Origin of Life, and the Evolution of Life?
Yes, individual modules can be used in classes such as Astronomy, Earth Sciences, Biology, and Technology. The Voyages Through Time Curriculum can also be used as a year-long, integrated science course, or general science course.
Does the curriculum teach students to use technology?
Yes, The student CD-ROM for each module contains the complete media section from the teacher CD-ROM, with the databases, videos, images, and simulations used in core lessons and activities. Additional images and videos that are not integral parts of the core instruction are also provided in an Image Library; these can be useful for students who wish to go further. In each 5-6 week module there is at least one core activity that requires students to use the student CD-ROMs in a computer lab as an integral part of the activity. For example, in the Hominid Evolution module, students use the student CD-ROMs in a computer-based activity to explore and analyze data on UV intensity and skin pigmentation. Please take the Tour of Voyages Through Time, or see Using VTT in the Classroom for more details.
