These days students don't know how to spell words correctly because there is auto correct, acronyms that they use when they text. Students always think not to look in a book for information, but to look on the internet where they could then get false information. In conclusion, accesses to Internet is harmful in education.
1. Due to the presence of internet, some students shorten their sleeping hours. They sit on their laptops late at night, chatting with their friends or playing games on the online gaming sites. If this thing continues for a long time, insomnia may occur. This is a state where a person is unable to sleep. This condition is very harmful as
we all know that proper sleep is a must for good health. Not only it would affect your mental growth, but your physical growth would also be very much affected by it. These days, students check their updates on Facebook and G mail even in the middle of nights on their mobiles. This also causes problems in the eyes of the students.
2.There are many things available on the internet that should not be in the reach of students. But internet does not have any hard and fast rule for that. A 5 year kid can
approach the content which only an 18+ is allowed to see. This leads to some
kind of moral corruption among the students. The innocence and purity of the
school students as well as the college students is extremely affected by such
3.When students use theinternet to bully other students of the same age group, this isknown as cyberbullying and this is a very negative effect of the internet on the students.
Students feel insulted or embarrassed when someone bullies them and this may lead
to depression sometimes. Mental harassment also comes under this category.
There have been many cases reported where some of the students have committed
suicides as a result of cyber bullying. As the usage of internet is increasing
day by day, cases of cyber bullying are also increasing simultaneously
4. Obviously, the more you sitin front of your computer, lesser the time you would give to your studies. Students do not realise this fact soon and when their exams approach, they feellike a lot of course is yet to be studied and they have wasted all their time
on the internet. In some of the cases, students start failing in their exams
which lead to further depression. Internet is a very valuable resource no
doubt, but if students use it excessively, even this resource can produce very
5. 'These days, students hardlydo any of the physical exercises. They prefer bikes instead of cycles orwalking. This may cause obesity. And, to add to this problem, internet is there. Students spend most of their leisure time sitting at one place in front
of their computers and very less movement is done by their body. Lack of any
kind of activity is one of the root causes of all the problems occurring to the
body. Even at night, instead of sleeping, they prefer to waste their time on
the internet. Many of other health related problems may also rise due to
obesity and inertia
Students will have a opportunity of getting more research done and having more information using the internet. In a textbook, there are limited amounts of pages, but on the internet there are so many and websites. Also, it is less to carry. Instead of kids holding a textbook and a notebook for every class, they can just have one, light iPad or laptop, for all classes.
These days the majority of students have access to the internet. There are other ways to find valuable information other than a text book. For example, on youtube, a well known you tuber John Green makes funny but educational videos that relate to math, science, and social studies to teach kids in a more exciting way. This makes hem want to learn more so they go home and watch more of the videos. Then they go back to school knowing more. The internet is an open place with many passage ways to learning things. Children relate things in school to the internet. TV shows, gaming websites, youtube videos, etc. Often trick people into learning but in a fun way.
No, I do not believe that access to the Internet destroys academic integrity, because students have always found creative ways to cheat. Before, students would just copy from a textbook. Today, professors can use the internet to check student work for cheating. It is the same problem only with a different medium.
No, the Internet has helped students to become smarter. Because students are better connected nowadays does not mean that they are up to no good on the Internet. Simply put, the Internet has helped move us further in regards to learning. Each and every teacher should be for uninterrupted access to the Internet.
Access to the Internet gives students a chance to research information from many different sources and adds the integrity of their work. It give them an opportunity to learn from many different sources and allows researchers to share information more quickly. Without Internet access, getting that information would be far more expensive and time consuming.
One could always go to reference books to find all kinds of information, but today that is just condensed on the internet. Since it is so easy to find, academic integrity will have more to do with how the information is compiled and interpreted so that the process is more sophisticated.
