Technology has opened the door to a vast world of information access for students and teachers, high-school teacher and EdTechTeacher instructor Shawn McCusker writes in this blog post. Students in today's connected classrooms can quickly access primary sources online, such as scientific notes, he writes. "In an economy of abundant information, connected students neither need to sit still to access information nor slow themselves to the pace of the teacher or their classmates," McCusker writes. "They are often free to explore and discover -- often at their own pace and on topics of their own choosing."
