The internet can be helpful because it can be used universally.
Students off all different ages, races and abilities can all benefit
from technology use. A student that has difficulty in a subject
can use the internet for looking up information and also viewing
pictures and taking virtual tours. Students that are immobile can
do the same. If funds are low in the school the internet allows
for things such as a virtual field trip like we discussed in
class. Technology really helps set nondiscriminatory standards in
a classroom. Students can also use technology to further their
knowledge in one subject area. A scavenger hunt may be created
for the student to have guidelines in using the internet. The
student may not understand the
information that is taught strictly from the text, so this is a helpful
way to increase their knoweldge. They can also use other media
supports such as videos, power point, or a poster
to support the topic being covered. Also, if a teacher has
difficulty teaching something one way, they have so many more options
using different technology resources.
