Question: Some people think that the Internet is a useful tool for education while others believe it can be distracting to students. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using the Internet in learning.

Essay

It is true that the ubiquity of the Internet in learning has been a boon to students. While some people argue that this trend has a pernicious effect on learners, I endorse the statement that students equipped with their own electronic devices better accumulate knowledge and develop critical thinking skills.

On the one hand, misusing the Internet inflicts harm on students. First and foremost, students are distracted by social networking applications. As a matter of fact, they can be tempted by the glamour of excessive breaking news on scrolling through their feeds. Students are glued to "off-task" news online instead of engaging themselves in their studies. According to recent research, about 40 per cent of Canadian students can not retain their attention during studying hours owning to social networks. Secondly, the high technology can serve noneducational purposes such as facilitating making viral videos on Tiktok. A great number of videos on this proverbial platform are shot in the class that can reduce discipline among students.

On the other hand, the Internet has an integral role in educating children and implementing animated discussions. Firstly, not only do learners enrich their knowledge but also derive pleasure from novel websites. To be more specific, common education programmes such as BBC learning English or Duolingo incorporate various forms of exercise into the curriculum in order to assist students in memorising and acquiring a wealth of knowledge. Secondly, the Internet encourages critical thinking by providing students with online forums. For example, pupils in the United Kingdom now can hold a debate with their contemporaries in the United Kingdom.

In conclusion, I am convinced that the widespread use of the Internet in learning has both its benefits and drawbacks. Notwithstanding some possible disadvantages, those who have the know-how to exploit the technology to the fullest can engage actively in their learning and attain eloquence instead of adhering rigidly to a traditional teaching

I revised my essay as follows:

While some people argue that this trend has a pernicious effect on learners, I endorse the statement that students equipped with their own electronic devices better accumulate knowledge and develop critical thinking skills.

Secondly, the high technology can serve noneducational purposes such as facilitating making viral videos on Tiktok. A great number of videos on this proverbial platform are seen to be shot in class, so this trend can reduce self-discipline among students.

On the other hand, the Internet has an integral role in educating children to think logically and creatively. Firstly, not only do learners enrich their knowledge but they also derive pleasure from novel websites. To be more specific, common education programmes such as BBC learning English or Duolingo incorporate various forms of exercise into the curriculum in order to assist students in memorising and acquiring a wealth of knowledge. Secondly, the Internet encourages critical thinking by providing students with online forums. For example, pupils in the United Kingdom now can hold a debate with their contemporaries in the United States.

In conclusion, I am convinced that the widespread use of the Internet in learning has both its benefits and drawbacks. Notwithstanding some possible disadvantages, those who have the know-how to exploit the Internet to the fullest can make headway in learning and attain eloquence instead of adhering rigidly to a traditional teaching approach.
