Courtney Dodge's curator insight, September 12, 2013 7:23 AM

The following article highlights the belief that teachers are no longer experts in the classroom, but are rather facilitators. Students have access to a wide range of information through the use of the internet and it is increasingly becoming the job of the teacher to filter this information down into relevant information.

The question of safety and reliability is also questioned as it is pointed out that the information avaliable on the internet is only useful if it comes from a viable source. The right people need to be involved in the e-learning so as to refrain from shutting out useful sources of information but also be prevent unneccesary behaivour on such sites. 

Ultimately it is the student decision as to weather they use the internet or the teacher as a education source.

Education has undergone a tremendous change because of the resources provided by the internet!
rodrick rajive lal's comment, September 27, 2013 5:07 AM
Education has become more of a challenge today for teachers who can expect to be questioned and grilled by their students who have today more access to information thanks to the internet than their teachers had in their student years!

Google drive really helps to shorten your working day. It cuts down the number of email you have to send. I keeps everything in memory so accessible from any time any where...And what is most important for many of us, might save you from the frequent: "I lost my portable hard drive"
