THE BENEFITS OF USING INTERNET
IN THE CLASSROOM
The Internet has opened up a world of exciting new educational possibilities in the classroom.It has vast potential as a teaching tool in the classroom, however, its full capacity is rarely utilized due to a number of reasons. The Internet expands classroom resources, it brings information, data, images, and computer software into the classroom from other places.
With Internet we can make contact with people over the world possible, adding into the classroom experts of each area, new and old friends, and colleagues in education.
A motivator for students can be the use of networks and their use encourages the kind of independence and autonomy that many teachers agree is important for students to achieve in their learning process. Because class, race, ability, and disability are removed as elements in communication while using the Internet, it is a natural tool for addressing the needs of all students; exactly how this is done will vary from district to district as schools empower individual educators and students.
School reform, which is much on the minds of many educators today, can be supported by the use of the Internet as one of many educational tools.
