@Ana1234 - I'm not so convinced about things like smartboards being a necessity in a classroom. I think it really is all about imagination and those sorts of technologies only make things easier, they don't really broaden horizons.
You can get your students to collaborate on a big sheet of paper, after all and you can show them video in almost any classroom. It doesn't take much to hook a laptop up to a standard television, so you can even do things like look up Youtube videos or whatever.
I do think that the internet is a vital tool and children should have access to it, because if they don't they are being disadvantaged in the real world. I think they should have a chance to learn to use technology. But I don't think they need all the latest and greatest gadgets at their fingertips to get a good education.
You have to look at what they're learning, not so much how they're learning it.
