We live now in the age of computer revolution in both teaching and learning. Times have changed and teachers and methods have evolved. Technology is now the key word. In the classroom there are new technologies such as over overhead projectors, interactive whiteboards, laptop computers and wireless internet. The classroom has no walls anymore! Teachers who traditionally were tied to textbooks and blackboards are now computer savvy and adept at using Power-Points. Students are now empowered by the wide world web so much so that learning is possible without the teacher and even the student can now become the teacher! Such is the wonder and power of computer technology.
