Every day new technology is introduced that makes the world a little bit smaller. You can talk with people in all corners of the internet-touched world almost as easily as you can step outside and meet your neighbor. You can tour other countries and learn about their cultures and experiences with a few swift clicks on the keyboard. Higher education and K-12 students can benefit from the variety of experience that these virtual learning tools bring into a classroom. All it requires is a strong internet connection and a willingness to learn.
