Internet Resources

Internet tools can be used in the classroom to promote collaboration, problem solving and creativity. These tools range from administrative tools to activate, assess and provide instruction to gaming and self paced activities. According to futurist Elliot Masie, gaming allows students to test limits in a safe environment and create an external and internal competitive spirit. Students can use online resources to design educational games or participate in educational activities created by teachers.
