As Internet access becomes almost universal in schools, we are going to see classrooms replaced by arrangements of Internet terminals and related technology. Increasingly, classrooms won't exist in a physical sense, because a classroom will consist of students scattered all over the globe, whose only interaction with the instructor is electronic. Internet itself has been around since the late 1960s; however, it has soared in popularity in the last couple of years. More primary and secondary schools are coming online and we will see impressive improvements in this technology over the next few years. Emerging technologies such as video conferencing and online virtual reality, multimedia, graphics and visualisation, quantitative tools, and the Internet will enable educational experiences which are only imaginable today. Teachers today can take advantage of this versatility of electronic communications to teach students in a more convenient, accessible way. Students themselves can get or search their information through web noders, gopher servers, usernet interest groups, listservers and research facilities. If this trend prevails, the traditional classroom, with its chalkboard, desks and textbooks will become obsolete. The aforementioned situation is already occurring at the university level. Leeds University in England has provided computer-based teaching materials to students for years, the response from students has been great. All Leeds students have completed their assignments, tests and submitted work which proves how useful and feasible the system can be. If you are not closely following these developments, you may be surprised at what is going on! Educators say that the potential of the Internet will concentrate on the World Wide Web because that is the most exciting technology today, and it allows for not only text but graphics, sounds, audio-visuals and eventually real-time video. In the past three years, Web browsers like Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer have made using the Internet extremely easy. All operators do is simply point and click on a computer screen. If schools want to teach students to use the Web, all they have to do is to ensure that they sit down at the computer for a few hours and look around. One of the most exciting ways to use the Internet in education is for students to participate in various virtual expeditions, explorations, investigations and discussions, each providing opportunities for shared inquiry. Shared inquiry is central to education and the realisation of human potential. Now the Internet offers, above all, multiple opportunities for shared inquiry. Because the number of people involved in the Internet is so large, there are inquiries on the Internet about every conceivable kind of topic and problem. There is always a group somewhere on the Internet communicating for the purpose of solving problems. So the Internet is proving one of the greatest resources invented for fostering growth. The Internet represents a dynamically evolving virtual world, with virtual communities forming all over the place, each composed of people with similar interests but diverse locations. Students can experience things over the Net that they would never be able to experience otherwise. Even virtual experiences are still experiences, and they can be quite real and quite educational.
