Gateway to Educational Materials (GEM) is a special project of the U.S.
Department of Education and the ERIC Clearinghouse on Information & Technology.
GEM provides educators with quick and easy access to educational materials on
the Internet.

Since the search allows educators to select from elementary through higher
education levels, it is possible to use this site in a variety of ways with
preservice teachers. Higher education faculty members can seek information,
lesson plans, etc. to use in their courses. The preservice teachers can search
for information for lesson plans to use with their students in their field

The GEM project stated that they are always looking for great new educational
materials available on the Web to add to their collection. This could also give
preservice teachers an opportunity to submit their learning projects to Gateway
to Educational Materials.

Technical Remarks:

Gateway to Educational Materials search makes it easy to locate information on
the Internet. It is possible to search by keywords and by browsing subjects.
