Why Why Is My Internet Cry!

  1. 1. WELCOME TEACHERS TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY FALL:1999
  2. 2. LET’S BEGIN <ul><li>TO THE TUNE OF BYE, BYE, MISS AMERICAN PIE… </li></ul>
  3. 3. A long long time ago I can still remember How my typewriter made me smile And I know I know I should take a chance That I could make that cursor dance And maybe I would learn to surf for a while 
  4. 4. But computers make me shiver With every click they’d deliver I could take it step by step All I would need is time to prep
  5. 5. I can remember the day I cried When the Internet I tried Something broke down deep inside The day my computer died
  6. 6. &quot;Why? Why?&quot; Is my Internet cry. Do I have to learn the net... and give it a try And watch Internet whizzes as they surf by Singing… the best thing since apple pie The best thing since apple pie 
  7. 7.   Did you say the net I’ll love And you think I can rise above If D.O.E. tells me so Do you believe it will change my role? The Internet will take control And enhance our lessons on the whole
  8. 8. Well I know that you’re in love with it Cuz I know you know about its bit You know the Net is cool And you know how to use it in school 
  9. 9.   I am a lonely newbie on the way With a mouse in hand and not much to say Staring at this computer display  And getting ready to ride the wave
  10. 10. I started singing So, &quot;Why? Why?&quot; Is my Internet cry. Do I have to learn the net...and give it a try And watch Internet whizzes as they surf by Singing… the best thing since apple pie The best thing since apple pie  
  11. 11. Now for many years I been on my own And never ventured to the Internet zone But that is how it used to be  Computers are part of the classroom scene And I must learn to use this new machine And look for answers on the screen
  12. 12. Oh and when the Internet had gone down A technician was nowhere to be found the Net class was adjourned the teachers would not return
  13. 13.   I am a lonely newbie on the way With a mouse in hand and not much to say Staring at this computer display  And getting ready to ride the wave
  14. 14. &quot;Why? Why?&quot; Is my Internet cry. Do I have to learn the net... and give it a try And watch Internet whizzes as they surf by Singing… the best thing since apple pie The best thing since apple pie 
  15. 15. You tell me that the Internet is power And I could just find what I want in an hour Oh I need a computer technician I think this computer has a condition  
  16. 16. And as I watched my instructor on the stage My hands were clenched the mouse engaged No freezes I could tell And my fears I would not dispel    
  17. 17. I can remember the day I cried When the Internet I tried Something broke down deep inside The day my computer died
  18. 18.   So, &quot;Why? Why?&quot; Is my Internet cry Do I have to learn the net...and give it a try And watch Internet whizzes as they surf by Singing… the best thing since apple pie The best thing since apple pie  
  19. 19. But if I take the time to learn You’ll guarantee that I'll return Because the Internet Is so very cool And all the sites it will let me ride Exotic places far and wide I’ll begin to use it as my guide 
  20. 20.   And here we are all in one place A group of us in cyberspace Ready to take on the net and start our class  And soon well all be singing So…
  21. 21. “ WOW!, WOW!” Is my Internet cry! I learned the net and I gave it a try I’m an Internet whiz as I surf by Singing… the best thing since apple pie The best thing since apple pie
