Community colleges are uniquely poised to prepare tomorrow's teachers to use Internet-based tools and curriculum resources to enhance learning. Through the integration of Internet-based real world data in the form of Real World Learning Objects, community college math, science, language arts and educational technology courses can be strengthened, while modeling best practices for pre-service teachers. With an emphasis on constructivist and problem-based learning, Real World Learning Objects provide a catalyst for improved teaching and learning in content courses at community colleges, transforming them into an exciting vehicle for the future of education.
