Conclusions

 Guide students with the elemental components offered by Internet. As a facilitator our labor is to teach them to use different tools and integrate them to the curriculum for effective and meaningful purposes. Telecommunication can change and improve students’ learning in three different ways. First, as the way teachers teach. The way teachers deliver the information and how students received it. Second, it can provide in-depth and current resources and information. Third, telecommunications can provide the opportunity to make learning more interactive. Students can share information with students from other contexts, exchange knowledge and experiences.
