What are the benefits of the Internet in the classroom?

The strength of the Net is in its ability to greatly increase the communication and collaboration among students and teacher, to increase the range of resources available to students, and to provide students with multiple ways of presenting their ideas and opinions.

It is up to the teacher to decide how these resources best fit their educational beliefs. The Net is a tool that when used intelligently is very powerful, but it us up to the teacher to decide when it is the best tool, and when it is best to use other resources.
