Incorporating real life experiances with lectures, not only makes the classroom setting interesting, but allows children to learn more with all that the Internet offers. Having children from different parts of the world learn about other students in complete opposite areas in the world is difficult in a classroom setting, but with the help of the internet these children can learn about the world with just a click of a button. With tours, museums, stores and many other information, children can learn about places and people as a while or on their own.

Teachers can also use the internet when they don’t have an answer to a question. With online sites made safe for them, they have the opportunity to explore.
