The teacher, students and the whole school with its structures and the local environmentexist and function in the cyberspace, regardless of whether the teacher uses new technologiesand of the extent to which he employs them in the process of teaching. This happens even if it isnot his wish and conscious choice. He might benefit from the use of new technologies or theymight bring no gains and even loses.
