This article gives information about research information that has been believed for many years “For many years, most scientists believed that each person was born with a certain number of brain cells and, therefore, a genetically predetermined intellectual capacity. New research, however, appears to refute some of those assumptions.” This is interesting to me, because I know many teachers that I teach with believe you can’t always change a child’s abilities.

The Importance of the World Wide Web in Education K-12
Guillermo E. Pedroni Submitted as final requirement for the MSE at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville (1996) < www.geocities.com/Athens/5461/paper_1.html > [13 Dec 04]
 
Weekly  Timothy McKean 
This page is simply Mr. Pedroni's Masters thesis on technology and education. This paper is intended to examine the use of modern technology, into the acquisition and transfer of knowledge, using resources from the World Wide Web in some elementary schools. It will also serve to determine whether this new way of accessing knowledge is a beneficial tool in aiding students to a higher level of achievement, because they are more engaged in their learning activities. The Internet has the ability to erase all geographical, languages, and time barriers so that students can continue their learning long after leaving the school grounds. Several projects are described, including projects by people other than educators. He discusses the WWW, e-mail, and the role of the classroom teacher. While a bit old, he has some interesting ideas.  Edit this entryEdit   Script to delete this entryDelete
