Editor's Notes

  1. Recent years - movement towards education becoming “global” Due to developments in technology and change in style of thinking Olden days (!) more than 5 years ago: “old” style of internet - visit sites - info - leave Since early-mid 1990s - web in 2nd phase Being used in a new way
  2. Broadens the scope of what we can do as educators Give students real-life experiences Gives us instant access to experts in whatever students are studying
  3. Don’t use real names/full names online Monitor all students use Discuss safety rules as a class Teachers act as administrators/moderators when students online
