The Internet is rapidly becoming a new source for information in the
history classroom and as such can be used to enhance the educational experience of
students as well as to stimulate interactive class activities using e-mail.
In these pages we illustrate several possibilities with links to existing
projects and a number of Internet-based resources (World Wide Web sites and listserv discussions).
Our selection is by no means exhaustive and by its subjective nature reflects our views of the kinds of skills and resources which can serve the needs of our students. Our intention is to demonstrate the richness and variety of the Internet as a 'teaching and learning space' and to encourage other teachers of history and social studies to take the advice of their colleagues to "break out of the classroom and wander out onto the information superhighway".
