1- From "Infomat": What is 'Internet'?
The Internet is a huge collection of computers around the world. These computers (there are millions of them) are all linked together, and they communicate with each other, sharing information. If your computer is connected to the Internet, it can connect to millions of other computers, in many different parts of the world.
The first thing to do is to learn the language of computers and the Internet.
By using the Internet, you can have lots of fun:
- You can send electronic letters (e-mail) to people.
- You can read pages on any subject on the World Wide Web.
- You can play games with people all over the world.
- You can chat to people in chat room
- You can even buy things on the Internet and have them delivered to your home!
"The World Wide Web is a part of the Internet. It is a collection of millions of pages of information."
This information can be about anything: Sport, Films, Television, Music, Business, School, Fun, Computer games, Animals, Shopping.
MOVING AROUND THE WORLD WIDE WEB PAGES
- The pages on the World Wide Web are all linked so that you can move around them.
- The pages are linked together using Hyperlinks.
- If you move your mouse over a hyperlink, it will change to the shape of a hand.
- If you click on a hyperlink, you will go to a different page.
- You can usually tell if something is a hyperlink because it is coloured and it is underlined (sometimes)
At the above sentence you would note the word "Infomet" which is in different colour.

"My goal is to help teachers fall in love with technology the way that their students have. I believe that technology reaches students in a way that few other mediums can. It ignites a fire, a desire to learn, and gives them the ability to express themselves in meaningful ways. I set out to give teachers a resource where they could find easy-to-implement ideas for using technology in their own classrooms."
