  1. 1. Top Ten Internet Uses in <br />Teaching and Learning <br />A. Marshall (6606) <br />August 2011 <br />
  2. 2. Top Ten Internet Uses in Teaching and Learning <br /><ul><li>Compulsory Education Both public and private school systems utilize the Internet for instructional purposes. </li></ul> --The Internet can be used for homebound students <br /> (e.g, students recovering at home from injuries or <br /> illnesses). <br /> --Students used the Internet for practice exercises in <br /> multiple subject areas (www.khanacademy.org). <br /> --The Internet is used for student career assessment and <br /> development (www.gcic.edu) . <br /> --The Internet is used by teachers to monitor student progress <br /> and differentiate instruction (www.studyisland.com). <br /><ul><li> Post Secondary Education Beginning in 1989 with the University of Phoenix, the Internet </li></ul> has revolutionized adult education through online course <br /> offerings and degrees. <br />Marshall (6606)<br />August 2011 <br />
  3. 3. Top Ten Internet Uses in Teaching and Learning <br /><ul><li>Corporate Training and Education Public and private organizations utilize the Internet to develop workforce skills. The Internet enables organizations to reach a workforce that is no longer corporate-centered but </li></ul> authorized for alternative locations such as work-at-<br /> home, telework, domestic, or global. Differences in location <br /> and time are resolved through asynchronous learning. Travel <br /> and loss-of-productivity costs are also reduced. <br /><ul><li>Research </li></ul>The Internet provides a global research resource for academia, <br /> government, and industry. Whether scientific or social, research <br /> communities are able to use Internet technology to demonstrate <br /> solutions to universal problems at a fraction of the cost and <br /> time that was once required. <br />Marshall (6606)<br />August 2011 <br />
  4. 4. Top Ten Internet Uses in Teaching and Learning <br /><ul><li>Colloborative Learning Colloborative learning can occur between learner-to-learner or </li></ul> learner-instructor. This interactive learning allows participants <br /> to contribute to the discussion and critique of a given issue or <br /> product. Use of the Internet has advanced colloborative learning <br /> through Internet environments such as formal college courses to <br /> informal venue such as chat rooms, wiki pages, and other <br /> community of interest Internet space. <br /><ul><li>Social Learning </li></ul>Considering that social learning causes a learner to experience <br /> a change in understanding or belief that transcends to a larger <br /> social setting, the Internet can influence attitudes through <br /> images, information, and cross-cultural exchanges. The <br /> accessibility and speed of the Internet result in a rapid spread of <br /> informal opinion (e.g., www.pen-pal.com).<br />A. Marshall (6606) <br />August 2011 <br />
  5. 5. Top Ten Internet Uses in Teaching and Learning <br /><ul><li>Self-Directed Learning </li></ul>One of the assumptions of adult education theory is that the <br /> adult learner is capable of self-directed learning. The Internet <br /> provides likely the most useful means of accomplishing <br /> self-directed learning through formal and informal options ranging <br /> from online courses to “how to” web sites <br /> (www.howtoguides365.com; www.youtube.com ). <br /><ul><li>Managing Content </li></ul>The Internet allows a repository of information for instructors that <br /> need to change course content frequently. Instructors can <br /> maintain course integrity by conveniently linking instructional <br /> content to web sites and pages that report current event <br /> information (http://currentevents.com/). <br />A. Marshall (6606) <br />August 2011 <br />
  6. 6. Top Ten Internet Uses in Teaching and Learning <br /><ul><li>Integrating Instructional Technology </li></ul> The Internet allows instructors to utilize multimedia that <br /> enhances variation in instructional delivery. In addition to <br /> links to other web sites, the Internet enables the use of video, <br /> audio, games, and colloborative tools that can appeal to <br /> different learning styles and better align instruction to <br /> the learning outcome. <br /><ul><li>Outreach </li></ul>The Internet provides a means for instructors to examine <br /> and share best practices for instructional purposes. <br /> Communication can be directed to other practitioners or leading <br />educational organizations. The Internet also provides a means for <br /> practitioners to voice concerns to policymakers and follow <br /> history, trends, policies, and legislation that impact education. <br />Marshall (6606) <br />August 2011 <br />
