The Networked System

I think it is pretty awesome that you can contact whoever you want to get help on a certain topic on the web. It is true that a lot of things posted on the web is inaccurate, if you double check your findings then you can get a idea if the facts are right. This could be good for the classrooms and help with student's assignments.

The system needs a teacher because he/she will teach the student how to work it and take advantage of the opportunity. The teacher is also needed for guidance when a student gets stuck. One of the most important things the teacher will teach the student is how to properly communicate with others and ask for help. Hopefully the student will remember all the teaching and use it in the future.

I believe I am ready to be a networked teacher. I will be able to show students how to use the web and technology properly. I will also use ideas from this class and from other places. I am sure I will be learning new technology and different methods I can use for my teaching style. I think all future teachers my age will be ready to be a networked teacher because all the old style teachers will be weeded out and new technology advanced teachers will replace them.


  1. You are correct. Baldwin County is now ephasizing the use of challenge based, project-based and problem-based learning strategies at all grade levels. These efforts are similar to the networked student's approach to learning except the approaches vary according to grade. So get ready to be a Networked Teacher!

  2. You are definitely right about the inaccurate information on the web. I've found a lot of it on Wikipedia. I also agree with you about the teacher's guidance being much needed by the networked students.
