The internet has become ubiquitous. It is where we go to get information, to connect, to collaborate, to share, and to create. Students and teachers can use the internet to do all of these things, and when it is effectively integrated into lessons and activities, it can be an incredible force for learning and teaching. Although the internet is ingrained in our daily lives, knowing how to effectively use it in the classroom is something educators have to learn, practice, and refine. With Digital Connections in the Classroom , you’ll get a foundational look at the internet and a better understanding of how you can use it to promote learning.
