How the internet changed learning

 The Internet is a solution to the numerous modern students’ problems. Today, they are forced to combine work with studies to get money for their living. To such students professional help is inevitable.

some may argue that the internet has led to students developing a lazy attitude towards education, and most have even forgotten the nitty-gritty of studying. Most students who use computers often misspell words because they use spell checkers most of the times.

It is undeniable that the internet is very useful and helpful during the educational process since it helps with the following:

  • Research: the internet carries volumes of information, and with just a ‘click’ you will get information you are interested in from varying sources.
  • Learning language: numerous tools and websites offer language learning materials. One of the well-known services is Duolingo. There you can start learning any language you want simply sitting at a computer.
  • Interactive materials: innovative devices are also available on the internet. Teachers can easily download them and use in the classrooms to make the studying process more interactive and exciting. Most learning materials are now visualized, so there is no need for 3D printing.
  • Communication: students and teachers can communicate through various media ranging from Skype to e-mails. Teachers and professors can easily send instructions to the students via video conferencing and live chats.
  • Personalized experience: e-books, websites, apps and learning games enable students to learn at their own pace. Students with the unique learning needs can seek the use of special apps.
  • Accessibility: the internet gives instant access to knowledge. Students can easily find solutions to problems, so that they can get a holistic view of the subject.

That said, the educational impact of the Internet is not straightforward. At a rudimentary level, it is important to remember that well over half the world’s population has no direct experience of using the Internet at all. While this is likely to change with the global expansion of mobile telephony, the issue of unequal access to the most enabling and empowering forms of Internet use remains a major concern. Moreover—as the continued dominance of traditional forms of classroom instruction and paper-and-pencil examinations suggest—the educational changes being experienced in the Internet age are complex and often compromised.
