Internet: The Future (Summative)

Here is the link to Jen Falk and I's final summative project!!!

Jen and I had a great time putting this final summative video project together. With a few giggles while rehearsing our interview lines for the video, we realized we had learned A LOT from this class.  Not only did we familiarize ourselves with many of the tools and applications that are out there today, we listened to great influential speakers, listened to our peers projects and findings and became avid bloggers and tweeters!

What does the future hold for the internet and education?

With the use of the internet as a tool, students are able to have the knowledge of the world at their fingertips.  This is beneficial for students and their minds since they can always be learning whenever and where-ever.   However, students need to realize that the internet is a tool and it should not encompass their lifestyle.  It is a tool that can be used for their education and learning but many hands on activities are also useful and beneficial for different learners.  Students need to understand that it is a resource and a tool that they may have access to but also need to be able to get away from the "business" of it all.

One great way of learning is pedagogy.  The idea of education being an art and a science and learning about teaching and learning as a whole.
