This report describes my observations and activities during an internship period at St. John's Collegiate. It also focuses on a research component on teacher's use of the Internet in an environment of unrestricted access I compiled while at the school. -- Chapter One provides an overview of the internship setting, the goals, the critical reflection, and the research component of the internship. Chapter Two presents the case study on two teachers' use of the Internet. This study was undertaken as part of a broader study to examine the effect on high school teachers of direct and unrestricted access to the Internet. I interviewed two teachers in an open-ended interview on a range of topics including, factors which led to their continued use of the Internet, how they are making use of the Internet, problems encountered when using the Internet, and changes in teachers' views of education due to Internet use. Chapter Three is a reflective summary of the internship experience and focuses on the roles of the learning resource teacher with particular emphasis on the following areas: the general administration of the resource centre, staff and student use of the resource centre, and the duties and responsibilities of the resource teachers. -- Both teachers involved in the case study were clearly deriving significant benefits from their Internet use; it allowed them to access relevant, current information for their own professional use and to locate educational sites for the benefit of their students. As a consequence, both were confident they would continue to be avid Internet users.
