The Internet and Education | Learning Technologies of Change

The Internet and Education | Learning Technologies of Change




We should consider the following questions:

- What are the potential effects of the Internet for education and learning?

- What main forms of Internet-based education have developed over the

past 20 years?

- How does the educational potential of the Internet relate to the realities

of its use?

- Most significantly, how should we understand the impending gains and

losses of what is being advanced?

It is well known that both the Internet and education are focused on information

exchange, communication, and the creation of knowledge.

The Internet isn’t just a powerful tool for communication. It’s arguably

the most potent force for learning and innovation since the printing

press. And it’s at the center of what is possibly America’s mightiest

struggle and greatest opportunity: How to reimagine education for a

transformative era.

(Bush and Dawson 2013)
