They improve their academic and social skills, and gain valuable familiarity with new technologies. She and her students initiate and participate in many on-line educational activities. Two of their Internet-based projects were recognized as exemplary by the International Society for Technology in Education's Special Interest Council on Telecommunications. In addition to her classroom involvement with technology, she acts as a resource for other teachers.
