The purpose of this study was to establish some of the ways in which teachers use

the internet as a lesson planning tool and also to analyse what effects this use

might have on their planning. The literature review highlighted the severe lack of

academic writing in this specific area. This mixed methods study involved the use

of a questionnaire survey and diary keeping by a number of participants, as well as

semi-structured interviews. The findings suggest that the potential problems and

advantages of teacher use of the internet are very closely related to each other.

Indeed, they are so intertwined as to be almost inextricable

The key recommendation arising from this study is further investigation of the

area, with a view to helping teachers better understand and manage their use of

the internet in the lesson planning process.
