Julene Reed wrote an article forEdTech Magazinetitled Howto create a world of success without leaving your classroom.She begins the article by stating “
Today’s students face a futurewhere boundaries are abstract and global learning is critical. Tomorrow’scitizens must be global communicators, must be able to participatesuccessfully in project-based activities, and must have collaborative skills.We are living in a world where technology tools and their uses seem to begrowing exponentially.  As a teacher I feel the responsibility of arming mystudents with the tools necessary to be successful in this technology drivenworld.
I used a quote by Al Gore in an earlier blog that succinctly states theimportance of preparing our students for the twenty-first century.  He states“Access to the basic tools of the information society is no longer a luxury for our children.  It is a necessity…We must give our children…the chance tosucceed in the information age, and that means giving them access to thetools that are shaping the world in which they live” (Tumulty & Dickerson,1998. p.55).Using the internet for instruction by incorporating web-based lessons canhelp ensure that today’s students are prepared to face a world wheretechnology has taken root in every aspect of our living.  Web-based lessonscan be used for:
electronic pen pals
electronic mentoring
virtual field trips
electronic publishing
group product development and collaboration
problem-based learning
social action projects
and more (Doering & Roblyer, 2010, p. 242)It is a new day.  They way we teach needs to reflect the global changes thathave taken place.  The way children learn has changed.  As educators weneed to embrace today’s technology and equip our students with the skillsnecessary to succeed in the twenty-first century.
