This research project employs the case study method to investigate the effects of instruction and learning with the Internet at the senior high school level. In the first year of this study, the main focus is to explore the current status of integrating the Internet into school management, teaching and learning. Some teachers were selected in six subjects, Chinese, Geology, English, Mathematics, Biology and Earth sciences, to use the Internet for their professional activities. The data collection instruments included the Teachers' Professional Use questionnaire and The Students' Computer Use questionnaire. The survey data showed that (a) more teachers and students knew how to access the Internet for instructional or learning purposes after the researchers intervened, and that (b) more teachers reported that they needed assistance for designing a web-based database and Instructional strategies for their Internet use.
