The idea for Lesson Planet was born in 1999 when founder, Jim Hurley, was teaching educational technology courses to K-12 teachers at UC Santa Barbara. Jim noticed the excitement teachers had around using the Internet was overshadowed by all the wasted time they spent scouring the Web for online learning resources. Lesson Planet was started to help educators spend less time searching so that they could spend more time teaching. Since those early days, Lesson Planet has helped millions of teachers find new and engaging lesson ideas that continue to inspire student learning.
