It seems that a new educational tool is being invented on a daily basis. There are so many technological tools built for education that it can be overwhelming for teachers to try to implement it all. This year alone my school started using four major new or upgraded technological tools. The shift towards technology based education is all relatively new. When current high school seniors were born, the Internet had just came into existence. Today I consider it to be the greatest educational tool ever invented.
The advent of the Internet has allowed teachers and students to take voyages and adventures into realms that would not be possible. It provides information both good and bad to students at an ease which has never been possible before. The information available to students online is vast. Teachers who use it appropriately can actively engage their students on a daily basis in ways never imagined a short time ago.
Do you implement the Internet within your lesson? What are some best practices you have found to implement the Internet? What are some of your favorite educational websites?
