Today, searching on the web is like brushing our teeth or having our lunch. It has become a daily necessity and part of us that we do on an everyday basis. I don’t think we can go a single day not browsing anything online. Back in the day people used to expect teachers to be able to transfer knowledge to us and often students thought that they teachers should know everything in the subject that they were going in class but today students are well-knowledge to accept that whatever we see online and read online can’t be known by the teachers for they are also human and they have limited capacity to store in their head to deliver.

Internet can also be incorporate in the classroom to browse anything real time and show clips to enhance the understanding of the lesson.
We always keep student performance records on a separate student progress report but we can use a bit of technology to store these different marks and grade achieved by a student throughout the year. The teacher is able to know what position this student stands and the reasons behind the grades.
