The Impact of the Internet on Teaching and Learning in Education as Perceived by Teachers, Library Media Specialists, and Students.
Richards, F. Christine
This paper describes a survey to determine the impact on teaching and learning in education by teachers, library media specialists, and students participating in Bell Atlantic's "World School" Internet program in West Virginia schools. Teachers, library media specialists, and students with K-12 Access e-mail accounts participated in this survey. The survey was issued randomly and the results were accumulated. Graphs were constructed to show the opinions of the participating groups for each question. The Internet did have an impact on teaching and learning in education. Study respondents preferred to use the Internet for information retrieval above all other activities. Respondents also felt that the Internet was a great motivational tool for students. The use of the Internet is causing a revolution in education, changing the way students learn and modifying the delivery technique. Integrating the Internet within education removes the constraints of the classroom from West Virginia teachers, library media specialists, and students, and provides a new global world of educational resources. The positive impact of the Internet can only be achieved if teachers are adequately trained, the school has a precise direction, and the Internet activities are well-integrated into the curriculum. Appendices include the teacher and student surveys. (Contains 101 references.) (Author/SWC)
