Response:  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.
