    Connections to real-world contexts.
    These researchers were referencing technology integration, back in 2000, and highlighted that the isolated act of introducing computers (basically, the du jour interpretation of "technology" at that time) did not automatically lead to improved learning or necessarily smarter students, as many would hope. Schools learned they must integrate technology in a structured manner to positively impact the teaching and learning process. The use of technology does provide the opportunity for the introduction of exciting curricula derived from real world occurrences, to allow for communities of learners that include not just the immediate classroom of students and teacher, but others throughout the "global" classroom and extending to our neighbors in countries we may never have imagined accessible in the previous pencil and paper world of education.*

    Unlike classrooms of the past that relied upon teacher directed monologues, we take a step back to include the student as a director of the learning process. We want students to be active participants, to become teachers as well as learners, in a collaborative community that welcomes introspection, feedback, and reflection upon learning.
    We, as teachers, have to be the proactive facilitators - to structure, guide, and embolden the learners of the 21st century with whatever resources are provided. Our classrooms today include learners of all caliber and abilities, as well as disabilities. So, now let us find the tools to reach all students and help them become the best learners.
