Over the past few decades, the internet has become a great resource for education. Web-based games play an integral role in a student’s learning habits. The advantage of playing a Web-based game is that it allows for students to connect to literature, media, vocabulary, math, history, language, music, and art. Web-based technology offers teachers the opportunity to educate their students through a variety of activities and games that challenges students to think outside the box.
Teachers are using web-based technologies to connect with their own personal learning network and other educators in the same area of expertise. This type of networking gives teachers the opportunity to learn about the newest trend and the best practice. Downloading online tools and apps such as twitter, webinar, video tutorials, pocket, and google hangout all give teachers the means they need to stay connected on the latest buzz in the media. Additionally, newly available art apps for iPad allow teachers to teach students about collages, drawing & painting using apps like Prompts, Draw & Figure.

When I hear the word free it catches my attention right off the bat. Now, there are tools for editing images online and cropping the images that were selected. This is an easy way for anyone to use the editing tools and images that are worthwhile. A few of the tools are Pixlr, Quick-Picture, and Picadilo.
Each year, there are new assets being implemented into the internet and apps being made with easy access. The change is taking place year-around and will continue to grow over time. The Edudemic story titled “How Is The Internet Changing Education?” documented some of the milestones, as well as provided this excellent infographic below. We look forward to the next advancements for our future classrooms.
