As the Internet has become a common household utility, more and more students are coming to school with Internet experience.How do students' and teachers' roles, and schools as institutions, change when these Internet-Age kids enter classrooms that are fully equipped with networked computers?This book offers a unique analysis of the issues and challenges teachers face as their classrooms become fully connected to the Internet.Anne Hird spent six months observing a class in a school with fully connected classrooms. She presents a vivid and insightful account–often reported through the students' own words--of how young teens use computers in and out of school; how they perceive the world shaped by the Internet; and how these factors shape their expectations for classroom learning.She observes and reflects on the paradox which confronts teachers in this environment. They are expected to guide students in learning with a cognitive tool that was not part of the teachers' experience as students, while students' familiarity with the Internet calls into question the authority of the teacher on which the traditional teacher-student relationship is based. She offers a strategy for professional development which recognizes and builds on this inevitable shift in the teacher-student relationship. This is an absorbing, thought-provoking and practical book for all educators--individual teachers and administrators alike–concerned about the integration of computer technology into elementary and secondary school classrooms.
