The Net Generation
Our students belong to the Net generation, and the teachers need to parallel them, need to learn how to use technology in the classroom. Teachers are facilitators who encourage the students to search, analyze and develop their own needy learning activities and use their imagination for academic purposes, too. This generation is very skillful in technology; so, we need to take advantage of it and help them explore and learn by themselves, allow them to work with others to develop and express ideas with the necessary freedom to interact with others, help each other, socialize, share communication and grow up bringing collaborative work to their human spaces. Bearing this in mind, our children need to be in contact with the world; globalization is here and we cannot close our eyes to this reality.
