by: Dorothy Valcarcel Craig

As educators meet the challenge of teaching a new generation of technologically literate and curious children, opportunities for classroom inquiry is crucial. The Internet becomes the perfect vehicle for assisting students with inquiry and fostering scientific literacy and natural curiosity of elementary school students. By allowing students choice, involving them and their interests in the learning process, and making resources available for inquiry, classrooms become not only a window to the outside world, but also a pathway for acquiring new knowledge and connecting the science classroom with technology and curriculum areas.
