Challenges with Applying Technologies in Classrooms
Recommendations and Further Research

From the Paper:

"The effectiveness of instructors to consistently deliver the best experience for their students in terms of lasting learning and retention begins with a core set of communication techniques, tools and talents those that gravitate to education possess. With the advent of the Internet and the rapid growth of all types of digital content, from the written to the spoken word, to digital static images to videos and full-length training tapes, the speed and ubiquity of the Internet is changing teaching. This translates into opportunities for instructors at all levels to further increase their ability to deliver valuable content to students, and it's increasingly becoming clear that this can be done either in the classroom or via the Internet, to other continents at the same time. This is nothing short of a revolution in how learning is taking place, and it's irreversible as Thomas Friedman (2005) mentions in his book, The World Is Flat, that knowledge and its fluidity is the new asset, not factories and fixed assets."
