Professional Growth Icon Teachers are also learners, and through integration of the Internet into their classroom activities, they can broaden their experiences, connect and benefit from the experiences of other teachers, learn about new ways of teaching, and reflect on their own teaching practice. For many teachers, using the Internet (or even the Computer for that matter) means learning something new, something they don't already know much about. Personal and professional growth can come from these experiences and new opportunities for learning that the Internet provides.
