Internet and Education

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)
