We are in the digital age and we need to find clever ways of learning, experiencing and

teaching related to technologic developments. From the printing press, we had not handled any

created understandable steps of reflection. Access based reflection occurs when the teacher-

student or student- student extensively communicate and directly reach to the information.

Above the limits of books, articles, and libraries, a computer makes it easy to reach all types of

information like music database, museum opening hours, available high- resolution pictures etc...

teacher can reach a music storage to study on it. However, the textual materials are in the library

of London. So, access to digitalized textual information in any of library or web database from

thousands of miles away or finding a paint to study from very long distances by computer based

network in classes creates a positive example.

Collaboration side of reflections is heart- warming part of the Taylor’s
