Nowadays, the use of Internet is not only more common, but also more diverse, therefore, for activities such as the entrepreneurial and the financial, lacking an Internet connection can result unconceivable. Thus, competitiveness and productivity standards are, in some way, understood and oriented toward global processes that lead to communication and cooperation between people, beyond geographic barriers, cultural environments, sociopolitical realities or languages.
Likewise, the educational environment is one of the human development fields that have been influenced by the rise in popularity of Internet, promoting the modernization and updating of the teaching and learning processes, together with factors such as: programs and plans reforms, graduation profiles that require the development of competencies and skills for competitiveness, changes in paradigms about the teacher figure, etc.
Even though having an Internet connection may not be a priority for carrying out teaching tasks, the use of web tools can impact areas such as:
1. Learning anytime, anywhere (permanent learning). Internet provides mediums that promote continuous interaction for people interested in specific subjects and allows them to not only share information, but also to collaborate and enrichen said materials. At the same time, these “virtual communities” (forums, blogs, wikis, etc.), stimulate the development of a self-directing attitude in learning. This learning self-management that Internet provides is not attached to a classroom, educational institution or specific time, allowing people to learn anywhere and anytime.
2. Selection and analysis of information. One of the situations that characterize the use of Internet is the vast amount of information available through a single click. However, the abundance of information does not only generate confusion, it also helps develop selection and analysis skills. The new educational parameters state that information gathering alone is not enough, it must be known what to do with it, as well as implementing creative ways for its construction and assessment.
3. Development of a global and multicultural conscience. The notable ease with which Internet puts us in touch with the world makes communication take shapes so diverse that it is practically impossible to be isolated. Internet provides applications such as e-mail, videoconferences, online courses, forums, etc., that shorten the distance between collaborators, enhance productivity and reinforce the processes of educational modernization.
To sum it up, Internet provides mediums that add to the achievement of more and better educational quality levels around the world. The use of Internet, each day more extensive, will provide, without a doubt, new communication methods that will be more interactive and productive, and that will generate more knowledge and applications for them. Despite all the situations that can be described about the use of the World Wide Web, such as coverage problems in developing countries, the need to ensure and safeguard the confidentiality of information and personal identity, or even the prevalence of the English language in terms of the information that can be consulted in web browsers. The use of web tools is in constant growth and the quality of educational proposals that can be found on the web should not be doubted and therefore, a first step for the use of this type of resources is the awareness of teachers and parents about the benefits that can be achieved in the teaching and learning processes with the use of Internet.
