    Undoubtedly, the Internet is an unquestionable resource for information and a necessity for all learners of any level. Notwithstanding, websites are a powerful tool in order to foster the qualities of innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration in our pupils. Therefore, I do deem that websites are amazing and fantastic tools since they provides different ways for teachers to encourage interactive, media-rich projects. The great news is that most are free and do not require any software to be installed. Using websites, learners can create digital bulletin boards, interactive presentations, and much more. With thousands of cool sites to choose from, we as educators should not hesitate to use them within our classrooms.

    “Not all informational websites are created equal. They range from static representations of content with few opportunities for interaction or support to dynamic, multimodal representations of concepts embedded within a pedagogically sound learning environment” (Coiro & Fogleman, 2009). According to Wijekumar (2005) if websites are used strategically and web-based learning environments, they can serve as tools for motivating, instructing, and assessing learners. Likewise, they can also facilitate peer interaction and extend thinking in a particular domain.
