REFLECTIONS

Focus on a piece on concept of appropriateness of technology.

Using the internet as a learning tool is good and effective. Upon surfing on the internet, I saw many sites that has program to make learning fun and effective. Some of the sites has games and the other has tutorial programs. Indeed internet is an easy access tool for learning. All you have to do is to search and click. But aside from these benefits, internet access may also be dangerous to the learners. From the sites I visited, some of the learning is incorporated with violent games which are not a good influence to the children. Some of the sites are also link with sites which has the content that is not suited for children. Therefore, using internet as a learning tool is good. But proper supervision of the teacher is needed. Before giving the topic or activity to be search, the teacher must check the sites first and choose those that are safe for the children. The teacher must give proper instructions to the students.
