The students have always
been able to learn, but is there
a better way? The students of today think that
is boring. They hate doing their work this way. What if their classroom looked like this? It is quicker, more accessible, and much more fun for everyone. There are many ways that the internet can be used to make
the classsroom a more organized place with a lot less papers. Web 2.0 Google Docs Twitter Flickr Cloud Computing Blogs Pandora Podcasts Online Bookmarks It is the Read/Write web You can read information on
the internet with Web 2.0, and
