The New WWW: Whatever, Whenever, Wherever
Educational Leadership Volume 63, Number 4, ISSN 0013-1784
We are entering an age of instant media gratification, in which a "multimedia aura" will "accompany us wherever we go," writes Tom March. The New WWW, says March, offers us whatever we want, whenever and wherever we want it. The effect on our children may be unrealistic expectations, premature disillusionment, and unhappiness. To counterbalance this trend, educators must replace the boredom and stress of "assembly-line schools" with real, rich, and relevant learning. The New WWW itself can make learning more authentic by putting learning in the hands of students themselves. March describes one strategy that any Web-connected teacher can easily create. A ClassAct Portal is a Web site in which a group of students gathers and shares information about a topic of special interest to them. The article includes an example of a successful ClassAct Portal and guidelines for teachers who want to create such a site.
