    The web appeals very much to the way our students

    now prefer to learn. They relate to computers in ways

    that buffle adults. They play, are entertained by and

    learn with computers. They also thrive on interacting

    with the divice.

    All imaginable kinds of information and data can be

    found , the quality and value of which varies

    tremendously; information that is instantly available,

    often very up-to date , worldwide in scope and

    presented is a more motivating format for students to

    explore.

    In the hands of able teachers, the web can play a

    prominent role in fostering development of the skills

    required by the new global economy in students.There

    is a natural match between the web and the

    development of these skills.

    How are educators actually using the Web? Many of

    these uses are merely extensions of what is already

    being done with more established media. This is not

    surprising because with a new technology we tend to

    think it in terms of the frame of reference with which

    we are most familiar . No doubt further research and

    development on the applications of the Web to

    teaching and learning is needed. Nonetheless, in the

    meantime, it merits serious consideration as we

    search for ways to revitalize and enhance what we do

    in our classrooms. (Ronald Owston-York University)

    The aim of this work is to present a collection of

    presentations which offer a number of ideas for

    engaging lesson activities using software and online

    tools.

    Let us remember that technology is only as powerful as the people who harness it. Let us never embrace technology solely to make learning cool when we have failed to first make learning work without it.
