Students today have never known a time without theinternet. They use it daily at home and rely on the internetfor information and communication. Teachers that do notuse multiple technologies are creating an unrealistic anddisconnected learning setting. According to Greenhow,Hughes, and Robelia (2009): Today’s youth are frequently creative, interactive, and media oriented; use Web 2.0 technologies in their everyday lives; and believe that more use of such technologies in school would lead to increased preparation and engagement (p. 247).Greenhow, C., Hughes, J., & Robelia, B.
