The culture of learning is changing, and technology is playing a major role in the transformation. Educators and students are altering the very nature of the classroom experience by increasingly turning to technology as an integral component of learning.
The result is that school is beginning to more closely resemble the real world, thereby becoming more valuable, relevant, and useful for everyone involved.
Sounds good, doesn't it? That's certainly the ideal, but there is so much out there: wikis, blogs, Twitter, social networking, and the near-infinite resources of the Web. Teachers, like a lot of us, may be overwhelmed, especially if, like a lot of us, they don't have a natural affinity for technology and the online world.
