The internet is changing how I think because it makes information much easier to access. It no longer takes hours of research to find out a random question that comes to mind, but rather it just takes a few seconds to Google the question. It also allows more people to put what they know out there, and as such it makes a giant, collective database of information. It allows me to take lots of information and then put my own perspective on it.
The internet is changing the way I think by changing the way that I access information. The internet allows me, along with everyone else who has access to a computer, to access any sort of information in a matter of seconds. The internet has helped to speed up my learning and thinking process because of how quickly I can retreive any piece of information. The internet has also however, made me less relient on myself and my own brain at times. Because I know that I can get a hold of any information, article, or paragraph that has been entered on the computer I know that I do not have to work, or think for that matter, as hard as I used to in order to retrieve needed information.
The internet has completely altered the way I think, learn, and communicate. Information is instantly accessible, practically when and wherever I want or need it. In addition, my participation in online forums has made me more open to opinions and discussions of ideas, because of the huge member base and daily collaboration. I now have the opportunity to connect with people on the other side of the world, ultimately giving me a new perspective on my daily life.
The internet is changing how I think on a daily basis. When I'm unable to find an answer, quotation, definition, or even an opinion, I easily type it in on Google. The internet allows people of all ages to not use their minds and instead rely on the information, that may not even be reliable, on some webpage. I am not proud to say how reliant I have become on the Internet's information because it takes away some of my creativity and makes me lazy.Although the Internet reduces the need for thinking, it is also a very good source for showing your thoughts in a creative way. Take Wordle as an example. You type in your own thoughts and information and wordle helps you present it in a fun and cool way.Does the internet change my emotions and feelings? No, but it does sway my opinions and information.
The internet has been changing the way I think, by making an uncountable number of information accessible in seconds. It helps me learn, but also deceives me into believing bogus facts also found on the internet. In the sense of knowledge, it is wonderful, but then again very distracting and unhelpful when I become off task. It is scary because people can find private information. You can connect with people across the world. There are so many aspects that overwhelm and baffle me.
The internet makes information so much easier to access. People can put anything on the internet, and no one considers if it is true or not. The internet has changed my thinking in the way that I don't think about things that I look up, I consider them facts that are always true.
I believe that the internet has opened up many doors for me in the areas of academics and my personal life. The internet is a great outlet for me to gather information for school or academic related topics. In seconds, the sum of the world’s knowledge is just a click away. Through the internet I can easily contact teachers and professors with my questions. Similarly, I can connect with my friends and have conversations with them at almost anytime of the day. The internet has allowed me to increase the speed at which I think by ten times; which can be good and bad. The internet has been a wonderful outlet for me; however I do believe that I have lost some of my skills while using the internet. In terms of the way I research I have become a bit lazy. Whenever I am posed with a question that I cannot answer, I simply turn to the internet rather than use any of the other resources available to me; I have a one track mind in this sense. In saying all of this, the internet has most definitely helped my learning and understanding while connecting me to any and all of the resources and information on the planet.
The internet is affecting the way I think in many different ways. To start, the internet provides another, much easier access to information. It is always so simple to look up a definition or locate sources for a project. But, on the downside, the internet may be limiting my thinking skills. All I ever have to do is look up an answer and I do not have to put much effort into the problem, but I enjoy learning and take pride in knowing that I have never, nor will I ever cheat and look up the answers to a homework assignment unless told to do so. Another advantage that the internet provides is access to communication. I have friends who live on the East Coast, and the internet and its many communication programs have allowed me to stay in contact with them much easier than it would be without internet. Finally, the internet is uniting the citizens of the world in a way like never before. If the majority of the people in the world have access to the internet, the communication skills between countries will grow stronger, bringing us together to solve global problems. Examples of being united would include making the world greener and helping to protect the environments of endangered and specials creatures that inhabit the planet with us. Indeed, there are many advantages and disadvantages to the growing power of the internet, and I believe that I have been changed for the better. I enjoy knowing that the world could be united in a way like never before, but I also believe that people should be cautious and make sure not to abuse the powers of the internet.
The internet impacts my learning experience daily. When I use the internet for a research project it's easy enough to just go to Google and look up the topic you're studying. However, I do sometimes just find the first thing about the topic and guess that it is a reliable source. I think the internet has somewhat made me more of a slacker in a way because I am not always as thorough in researching. The internet has however created many ways to learn from different kinds of sources. With the internet you can now have conversations with people by not even leaving your house. You can also research different websites instead of just using one certain kind of research tool. I think that the internet can be used in a good way and it helps me learn about what I can do to make my learning experience better.
The internet has changed the way I think because it has changed the way I access information, and socially orient myself. The internet opens a door into the world. It allows one to find out information about any topic, any time by simply typing a question into a search engine. With information so accessible, the ability and expectation to learn and ask questions is much more present in our generation. There is so much more knowledge accessible to me than there was to my grand parents and even my parents, and with that I believe comes a responsibility. We have the responsibility to take advantage of that information and know more about our world than those before us could. Instead of remaining ignorant to the issues that spread all over the world, we can educate ourselves in order to make a difference. I have access to so much information I believe I need to use that to create my own beliefs, thoughts, and self image. The internet changes the way I orient my self socially. Facebook is a connection into the world. No matter how far away, I can talk to any one of my friends at any time, all that is needed is an internet plug in. The internet allows for fast and easy exchange of information.Though the internet creates many opportunities it also has it's drawbacks. With fast and easy access to information sometimes comes laziness. Anyone can put anything on the internet, and some of that information is not always correct. I often accept the first answer I find, rather than looking more deeply into other sources and verifying the answer. The correct answers are there, but not always on the first link the search engine finds.
It is changing the way I think by making information easier to acess at any time. It makes it so I do not have to memorize things that past generations did. But it has also made me think more then I usually do about facts I see. Usually when you see a fact in a book or a news paper you dont usually have to worry about if it is true or not but with the internet you have to question everything. The internet is its own community made up of people not just from your small town but from all over the world. This makes me think about how I will have to not only live in but compete in that community in the future.
Living in a society where any little factoid can be Googled, the internet has certainly changed the way I think. Since having more access to the internet, I have found that I can complete practically any assignment or find the answer to any question. If I have a question about homework , I can simply check to see if one of my classmates is one of the 13,009,091 people on currently on skype, and boom, within minutes I can return to my studies. Instantly, I can find an answer to anything. This quick access to information has led me to expect other forms of information to be just as quick. The internet is also changing the way I think, because I am no longer confined to my "bubble." I study Chinese and learn characters on a website created by a Chinese citizen. I can chat with people from around the world. Anyone can see what I post, comment, and publish online. I am no longer learning from the center of the bullseye, but the entire thing.Several others have said that the internet has limited their thinking skills, but in my own life, I disagree. True, I am not memorizing the Dewey decimal system, but I think just as much if not more utilizing the internet. With everything from 'why will this page not load' to 'is this information correct,' I am constantly learning and applying the information I already know to make new connections. Sure, there have been times where I need the spelling of a word, and I do not check the source, but generally the quality of the information is not the issue. Sometimes, it is just the situation. Not only is the internet changing the way I think, but it is changing the way our society thinks. Terms such as Google, email, and skype were not around 15 years ago. Our society has become a society of expecting the answer to be in black and white, smack at the top of the page. Many of today's teenagers cannot remember when they last checked out a book from the library, much less where their library card is. This movement away from hardcover has changed the face of our society and will continue to do so.
The internet is changing the way I think because I no longer need to refer back to old essays or worksheets to refresh my memory. I can simply "hop online" and find my answer within a matter of minutes (depending on how quickly my computer wants to operate on a certain day). The internet is, for the most part, a reliable source for obtaining information. There are web posts, blogs, essays, worksheets, even answers to certain questions available for users to learn from. Anyone can use the internet (except for children who need permission to do so), and it is user friendly. Occasionally, there are those annoying pop-ups, but as long as you ignore them, you can ensure that your computer does not recieve viruses.On the other hand, however, the internet has also changed the way I interact with other people. Social networking sites such as myspace and facebook may seem harmless and fun, but there are predators lurking everywhere. Pretty much anyone can access your information, and if they are smart enough, they can even track you down or steal your identity. This is the internet, so anyone can pretend to be someone they are not. I am most definitely more cautious whenever I surf the web now because i know that anyone can hurt me everytime I am online.
The internet has changed the way I think in a variety of ways. For one thing, it has greatly expanded my vision by enlarging the amount of information that I can access. Each day, I find that the internet can take me beyond what my textbook wishes to tell me. It also offers information that I may not ever learn by sitting in a classroom listening to a teacher. I can usually answer any question with help from the internet. This has sped up the pace of my life and has left me less reliant on help from fellow students, teachers, and parents. The internet has also changed the way I communicate with others. I can talk to people with more than just simple words. I can send them pictures and sounds to express my feelings. I can present information to them in ways that are more creative. I am no longer limited to a simple voice across a telephone wire or boring black and white words. I can make my work colorful and interesting to the eye. I can link viewers to all sorts of sites to back my position. In addition, I can share by ideas with anyone. The sky is the limit with the internet. I have heard people say that the internet is dehumanizing because people no longer have any reason to meet with each other face to face. I agree that the way people cut words in emails and chats is disturbing. However, I think that the internet connects society and helps us share ideas with each other. One can never find as many opposing viewpoints in a textbook as he/she can access on the internet. This is power, because each person sees a bit of the truth. Every viewpoint is very important. I believe that this can help humans solve problems because everyone holds a piece of the puzzle. The internet has made me more cautious and has greatly aided my analyzing skills. Research may actually take me longer on the internet because I am very thorough with searching through sources. Anyone can post information, and as a result, I must decide for myself what is true and what is false. It teaches me to think for myself. The internet has also helped me to anticipate problems and become more prepared. I know the internet could crash at any time, so I make sure there is a way to reach my math textbook off line. I also acknowledge that Microsoft Word could close without warning, so I learn to save my work in a variety of places. I believe that anticipating problems is one of the most useful skills to have in life. The internet has also taught me to make sure that I am proud of my work. Any one online can read the thoughts I leave behind, and once I message is sent, there is no getting it back. Therefore, the internet has actually made me a better editor. I need to find those mistakes before it is too late, because every post leaves a lasting mark. The internet has caused me to embrace modern times with its weaknesses and its strengths. It has helped me to explore the information and ideas that today’s world has to offer. It has greatly changed the way that I think.
Internet has changed the way I think in many ways. When I'm looking for something that I've lost (which is often, I am not very organized), I will catch myself thinking, "I need to do a CTRL+F and find it". Of course, that doesn't work. When I want to know something I immediately think, "Google!" when if internet wasn't around, I would be thinking, "Ugh. Library". Internet has changed the way humans and the world operate.
The internet compiles many different elements into one central, easy to access place. This is how the internet is changing the way I learn. It is almost the idea of instant gratification that is changing how I learn, because if at any time I would like to understand something better, or even learn about something for the first time, it can be found on the internet, and accessed in a matter of seconds. For me, changing learning techniques is one of the most important learning experiences because you become well-rounded in the usage of resources around us. The internet is changing what is at our fingertips.
For me, the internet has been there for nearly everything I needed my whole life. I complete almost all my homework useing it as a resource for essays, worksheets, and online textbooks. I searched this very question and thousands of millions results showed up. For me finding this many results within .17 seconds is miraculous. Nearly any question will have an answer somewhere on the vast reaches of the internet. When I am stumped on a question for homework, I search the internet and faster then you can say google, you have an answer. The internet is the first that can do this. No matter what critics say, it is good.
The internet allows people to connect to the world while still connecting with the few around you. The internet changes the way I learn because of connections to the outside world, and the information available to access on the internet. First, the internet allows me to connect with people from all around the country as well as all around the world. For example, Smith’s English 9 Honors class was able to share one another’s essays with a class from Florida. The internet allowed my class to become known, become something more than just a regular 9th Grade English class. Next, the internet changes the way I think because of the limitless access of information available to anyone using the World Wide Web. The internet allows me to be aware of both sides of a story or fact. By having this information readily available, me, and students like me, are able to excel in learning, and have a more advanced and thorough base of knowledge. With the internet constantly changing, students all around the world will become more familiar with others like themselves.
The Internet is changing the way that I think because it gives me access to so many perspectives in just seconds. When I am looking for articles about certain subjects such as presidents there are articles from many points of view. There may be some in support and against the president and it helps to persuade me in one way or another as to my opinion of the man. Another way internet is influencing me is because I rely on it more to answer questions I have. There are web sites such as Ask.com, and Wolframalpha.com, that I can type questions in and it will answer them for me. Overall internet has made things more accessible and easier to use for me.
The internet is changing the way I think about the world and other people. Depending on how they present themselves on the internet, gives me a lot of insight of who they are as a person. Websites like Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter, give people the freedom to express themselves in a way that might not always be good, or represent them in a positive light. Though these are all social networks there are also websites out there that teach us about current events and keep up us to date by making the important news easy to access. When I get on to check my emails there are always news articles in the margins of the screen which beg to me to read them, and they sometimes teach me and make me think about current issues. So the internet is my number one resource when it comes to thinking about new things and other people.
Information is so readily available now via the Internet. I use google at least 5 times a day. I can learn about anything I want at the click of a mouse. With information so readily available I feel more informed. It also has helped me develop a more refined skepticism when it comes to written fact and opinion. Over all I believe it to be a positive influence in my life.
The Internet has a tremendous impact on my learning, changing the way I approach tasks and assignment, as well as the way I think. In Elementary school, the tools available to us were paper and pencils. While computers where around, they were not utilized the way they are in High School. Today, if I am asked to complete an assignment, I have easy access to the Web giving me information needed to accomplish the given assignment quickly. It is fast and efficient, not to mention learning and being updated every day. The Internet has changed the way I think by expanding my horizons. This may sound cheesy, but with the Web, there is no way our class could have contacted a school in Florida to compare pieces of writing. I rely heavily on the Internet for quick information as well as a variety of opinions to cross-reference and devise my own ideas. The World Wide Web has broadened my field of vision and opened me up to new possibilities.
The Internet has definitely changed the way I think. Just in thinking about information and seeing all the different versions of facts makes me really think twice about the information I access. I feel that is really valuable to my learning because it allows me to analyze and look at my information more. It makes access much easier which is really helpful when researching for assignments. Just as Garrett says, the Internet really has opened my field of vision and I see new possibilities. Even in something like a social networking site such as Facebook it allows me to realize it is possible to stay in touch and connect back with people I have not seen in years which is great.
The Internet not only changes the way I find information but also the willingness I have to work. When I go to find information the first source I think of is the Internet. The Internet makes it too easy for America's modern society to communicate, gain knowledge, and find answers to questions. This fact is diminishing our willingness to work and solve problems on our own. We need a ambition to achieve perfection without such an ambition our work ethic is gone.
The Internet has a big effect on me when I need to do homework or something that requires using the Internet. If I need to research something, I can easily do so just by getting on the Internet. By knowing that I have the Internet always here for me when I need it, it acts as a fall back for any last minute researches or answers to a question. It can almost be called a cheat sheet since the billions of websites on the Internet have all the answers to any question or topics. Even though there may be some false information on some of the websites, somebody can easily just look at other websites and compare the findings. Most Elementary school students are just learning how to use the computer and Internet, so I didn't start using it all the time until about middle school. As the years progressed and we are supposed to be more independant in finding the information we need, I have become a lot more dependant on the Internet. Even though we still have textbooks, probably all of that information can be found on different websites. So, basically the Internet has allowed me to become more comfortable with researching websites rather than looking it up in books. As computers progress even more, books will be even less used and more people will turn to the computer for the answers they need.
The Internet has changed the way I think by actually thinking less, but yet learning more at the same time. Information can be found through a click of a button now with Google, so I've found it less important to remember tiny details that I can find online, but rather focus on bigger ideas. You can also find things even if you only know parts of it like if you only know part of a quote you can type in what you know to find the rest of the quoteThe internet also makes me feel more connected with the world as I can see exactly what is happening in the world at any time.
The internet has changed the way I think in numerous ways. I can communicate with people all over the world. I can find all the definitions, synonyms, and translations for any word, all without any books whatsoever. I can download an online text of a book, or short story. There are tens of thousands of things that we can do using the internet. It helps us learn by asking questions. I also believe that students are more likely to complete a project if it involves a computer, let alone the internet. The internet is full of possibilities, so it stretches the mind in ways we cannot comprehend. We can share ideas with anyone we want, or see others' creativity to help inspire our own. Without the internet, our generation would be lost in today's society.

I do not really think that the Internet is directly changing the way I think, but rather the expansion of my thoughts. When I use the Internet, I research specific topics and compile that information I receive with my own knowledge. By doing this I do not truly alter the way I think, but instead I am using the Internet's capability to help me broaden and augment my thoughts. The Internet more rather encourages me to think more and to delve into the tiniest details of any topic. The Internet, in a way, is controlling the way people think by proving people with what they need when they need it. I personally like to be free flowing and to have my own ideas and beliefs. I do my best to limit my use of the Internet because at one point I felt reliant on it. It seemed to be providing me with what I thought. In many senses, the Internet has saved me from much trouble and encourages me to keep up with modern technology and stay a decently versatile person.
The internet has entire changed the way I think in multiple ways. To find any information imaginable, all I have to do is type it in on Google, and "Poof!", there's five million answers to my single question. Due to the ease of finding information, I have developed a reliance on Google and the internet. This reliance could also develop into laziness, but I attempt to "actively" search the web. The way I think has most directly changed in the sense that I no longer really "think" about what I am looking up, more that I am recording it on the homework assignment.Although, in some cases, I search one thing and end up reading about twenty other tidbits of information. As the entire society has been given the opportunity to use the internet, the reliance has developed into a common issue. I completely agree with Grace in saying, "Without the internet, our generation would be lost in today's society." I ponder the idea that supposedly our generation is smarter, stronger, and faster than the past generations, but are we really more intelligent, or do we just have more resources? Without the internet, how would our 2nd hour class function? I think the school would actually be unprepared to maintain classes without the internet.But luckily for Arapahoe, the internet is thriving, and regardless on how "lazy" I may become, I will continue to use the internet, for it is the driving force behind the present and future.
The internet has changed the thinking of students all over the world, and although there are some positive enhancements it has done, it also, in my opinion, has left a negative impact. Starting with the positives. I think it is great that in order to find background information, or like Bree said, helps us keep in touch with friends. I love the fact that if I do not know something all I have to do is one click of the mouse. However, there are clearly changes that were not as beneficial. Think about this, if you don’t know where your friends house is you Mapquest it, right? This is eliminating communication skills because they don’t need to know how to explain and you don’t need to know how to ask. Also, as Zac was saying it makes us lazy. Students are dependant on the internet to find definitions or the answers to their math homework. I assume that when given this opportunity, some people take advantage of it and don’t even try on the homework or don’t bother trying to figure the word out themselves. Internet has totally changed our thinking, and unfortunately I do not believe it is all an improvement.
The internet is changing how I think because it makes things like research a billion times easier than they used to be. Instead of having to look through countless books, I can just get online and go to Google to find an answer to a question. Also, it makes collaboration with other people a lot easier. Without the internet, people would have to either call the person they're working with or be in the same room. Internet makes this easier because now things like email, instant messenger, and Skype make it easy to work with other people.
It is such a privilege to have the Internet to my advantage. It unquestionably changes the way I think about education and the world. There seems to be no end in the possibilities and gateways opened to learn about anything and everything. One of the largest areas of the curriculum that is important is becoming culturally educated. The Internet also can tremendously improve how you socially orient one’s self, as Jessica has stated. The Internet changes the way I think by accumulating fascination in technology, taking a huge step in education and improving social networking skills.
The internet changed the way I think by making it possible so that I dont have to think, I just have to click a few keys. It was not until middle school, that a computer became part of my daily routine with schoolwork,then everything became easier. All of the information I needed was at the tips of my fingers. Now I could not imagine school without that capability. The internet is quick, easy, and convenient. This appeals to many in our fast paced society. However, with all of this technology you have to wonder when tools, such as the internet, get bigger and bigger, will it replace the human mind, causing us all to depend on the internet and never think for ourselves?
The internet provides instant information, which is something relatively new to society. In school, it is now no problem to look up a quick fact or do some research conveniently. That being said, less time is spent dwelling on accessing information, and more time is spent on actually taking in and studying the information. With the internet, it is easy to see what multiple sources have to say, which helps in expanding my thoughts. It is pretty hard to imagine life without the internet because we rely on it so much today, and without it, we would be at a disadvantage. The way I think has changed because as I said, information is so instant, so I can retain more of it.
The internet has changed the way i think because it has dumbed me down. I don't have to memorize anything like it was in elementary school. All I have to do is look it up on the internet and it is right there spoon feeding information to me. I don't learn all that much, i just take it in. So it has changed the way I think because it has taken over my life and made it so that i don't have to think anymore.
The internet has made me think differently and defiantly think less in the way that i now know that anything i could ever know is at my fingertips. Now when i want to know something, i don't have to look it up in an encyclopedia, i can look it up on google, yahoo or bing, without even having to think about it. And that way i can get way more information than i ever could through an encyclopedia. Now I only have to think of which link will be the most helpful to whatever i want to find out.
The internet has completely altered the way I think, learn, and communicate. Information is instantly accessible, practically when and wherever I want or need it. I can instantly access important information instead of spending a tediously long time searching for an answer. The world is accessible with the click of a button right from the luxury of your lap. The internt has revolutionized the world and changed the way I think in many ways.
I think that the internet is one of the most outstanding aspects of the modern world. It is the dictionary, the encyclopedia, every song every written and every person who ever existed. The internet has not only shrunken the world, but it has changed it irreversibly. Without the internet, the entire would be slower,less intelligent and entirely different.The internet is changing the way I think by changing the world we live in.I believe that the internet has made the world much more advanced, but with a change that big, there is no telling what the consequences will be. With something so powerful there are untold dangers waiting to be discovered. The internet is a dangerous tool and while being useful it must be carefully used because just like with many tools it can be easily missused.
The internet has influnced my thinking in numerous diferent ways. The internet has opened up so many different outlets so that I am connected to unlimited sources of information. The internet allows me to get viewpoints that I would otherwise be restricted to because of restrictive distances.It has also given me a bit of doubt, so that I always have to double check the facts, so I know that what I'm saying is correct. The internet has changed the way I think because it has changed the way I learn.
The internet has changed the way i think because of all the resources that come with it. I definately do less thinking and less effort with my searching because I can just go onto google and find whatever i want. It also has changed my thinking because of all of the different points of views and ideas out there but I have to know what information is right and what information is wrong. With the internet at my fingertips I can change someones thoughts or any information that they know. The internet has changed me most by how i learn and what i learn.
I think modern, I think inovation, I think technology. The internet has caused the world to think in a completly different manner. Before the world wide web rolled around, students sat in desks and wrote with a pencil and a piece of paper. Now that the internet has taken over, the human race learns by Googleing or blogging and in the class room, students type their work and email it to their teachers, instead of turning in a hard copy. The internet has caused me to learn in the future, not in the past.
The Internet is changing the way I access information, communicate with others, and express my opinions and ideas. If I need to obtain certain information about a subject, I can easily open my computer, go to Google, and find the info I need. When my parents were in high school, acquiring information was a lot harder. They did not have computers to help them find information; they had to look up data by searching through books. I am probably thinking less than my parents did because it does not take much effort or thought to find something on the web. The Internet is also a way I can communicate with others. When I am not at school, I can log into Facebook and talk to my friends via the Internet. If I need help on homework or have a question about a class, I can talk with someone from the class through speaking to them on a blog or by email. Contacting teachers is a lot easier with the Internet because if I have a question or comment, I can email the teacher or write on the teacher’s blog so they can assist me. The Internet is a place where I can share my thoughts about certain topics. I can blog about something that I am thinking about or communicate my ideas about anything. Instead of writing a paper to convey my opinion on something and have no one read it but my teacher and myself, I can blog about it so that anyone with access to a computer can read it. The Internet has altered the way I think and the way I live my life.
Internet has drastically changed the learning environment in schools across America and the rest of the world. Everyday it allows a portal to knowledge outside of the classroom. It gives learning an expansion into the world outside of school. It has changed my learning greatly. I use my laptop in up to four classes a day. I am more effective when using one and can easily access more information about an in class subject. Not only has the internet changed the way I think about in class subjects, but also the way I think about many other things. The ease of search engines like Bing or Google allow for easy access to any subject matter. Whatever one wants to learn about or know, there is bound to be an article, video, recording or website that talks about that thing. Internet has changed difficult questions into quickly answerable ones and has given thought a less active approach.
The Internet has really changed the way that I acquire information and also how I communicate with others. If I need to find out any quick information I can just pull up the Internet and search what ever I need. If I want to know a little fact for history, I do not have to rummage through my textbook, or read over past notes. I simply get online and type the question in the search bar, and just like that I have the answer. It has made me more efficient and much faster at acquiring information. Also, it has changed the way that I communicate with others. The Internet today has many things that help me and everyone else interact with each other. I have resources online like Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, etc. that have me communicating with others in other ways then talking. I can talk, share pictures, and do other tasks while still online. The Internet has changed how I have acquired information and how I communicate with others.
The internet is changing the way think due to the instant access to information. It has made learning more efficient and makes communication across long distances easier. It also allows parents to keep track of their students grades and contact the teachers if they have concerns. Now by blogging, students, can share their thoughts with other students half-way around the world. The internet has changed learning all over the world.
The internet is changing the way i think because it makes information much more accessible. Instead of spending hours looking up information in many different books, i can just type my question into Google and get an answer within seconds. When i need information for a paper, the first source i think of is the internet. If i cannot find the information i need on the internet, then i use books. The internet allows me to look up information in a fracture of the time it use to. The internet also changed the way i communicate with others. To communicate with others, i use to have to write handwritten letters. Now i can just email someone and get a reply within minutes. With the internet, everything is much more accessible and easier to use.
I think that the internet has changed my life by telling me not to take what I am being told for the end-all, be-all, absolute truth. In my middle school we were told to have a book and resource book to back up any facts that were found on the internet. So if I was writing a paper on our two main candidates for this past presidential election I would be required to back up my facts with a written source. At the time it was highly irritating but now I realize that it was helpful to learn a different way to research.
If you Google search the word "internet" 1,500,000,000 results. Internet is described as 'the use of interconnected computer networks... to serve billions of users worldwide... the network of networks.'Or for us, it could simply be called the World Wide Web.Through the internet, information is accesible at the speed of light. Literally. I suppose it is a beneficial thing. If we want to know the capital of Iceland, we Google search it. If we want to know about other countries, we Google search it. There is no limit to the amount of information that is available. However, I often see the internet in a negative way. Despite the fact that I can keep in touch with family and friends oversees, and send pictures to my Grandma who lives in the middle of nowhere. I can write a paper without leaving my desk to pick up a text book. Yet not everything on the internet is true, and the internet makes us lazy. There is no longer much reason for a person to go to a good college if they can take the classes online. There is no reason for someone to look up the life of Christina Yamaguchi (half of those reading this don't even know who that is).Yet there once was a day when newspapers and radios told us what was what. There was a day when people yearned to read history books to gain new knowledge.So, to answer the question HOW IS THE INTERNET CHANGING THE WAY YOU THINK? I would have to say this: It doesn't make people think. And for those of you who are wondering, the capital of Iceland is Reykjavik.
Internet is changing the way I think by changing the way I access information. Many times it is difficult to tell if a source is reliable or not, because there are hundreds of sources found on the internet. Some from known organizations, others from personal pages. At times the information used is accurate while occasionally it is not. However in general information is instantly accessible. The Internet also changes the way I go about in communicating with others. Communication with others is faster and is immediate, and at times free. I am able to see people in other countries or in another household just by using a web-cam. I can contact someone instantly and if not, an email can be sent to be accessed later on.
Internet is changing the way we think because we no longer have to think as hard to find information. We used to have to go to a library and look through all tons of books. Now we just search Google. There are problems with the Internet; you never know what is reliable and what is not. Many times you have to check different websites to make sure the information you are looking for is correct. The Internet is also changing the way I communicate with others. It is so easy to get a hold of your friends. Instead of going over to see them all you have to do is text them. In some ways I think the Internet is changing us for worse rather then better. We rely on the Internet and technology to do so much for us. Where will we stop?
I think that the internet is changing the way people act and use their day. Instead of in the olden days in regards to schoolwork. we no longer have to go to the library to check out books to research a topic. Everything is now posted on the internet, encyclopedias, books, volumes even textbooks are all accessible on the internet. This saves us a lot of time and we wander, onto other sites such as facebook or myspace, twitter, my yearbook ect.... Also in religious aspects, church services are video taped and posted online, people no longer have to go to church. The only problem with educational websites is that we don't know what is real and what could be something someone made up. The internet is also a prison for some people. Some students seem to not be able to survive without their internet connection, whereas in Guinea the internet is so slow, that no one uses it.
The internet is making me lazy. It changes everything. When I don’t know something instead of asking my mom or teachers for help I’ll just look it up. I won’t know if it really is true or not but the internet still gives me information. It also changes how I portray myself. With internet connection places like face book or MySpace, you can change how you look to the people looking at your page. I admit to having a MySpace (no face book though. I don’t like face book)and I mostly use it to keep in touch with the bands that I fallow and keep track of their tour schedules. However I do have a "about me" I am vague and unspecific so people end up painting their own picture and view of me. Or anyone else for that matter. Internet also changes my views of online safety. I don’t personally connect myself to the child molesters or the creepy people. To me it’s always someone else that things like that happen. I don’t see how it could get to me. I view myself in a little bubble that nothing bad can get through. But things can and that little bubble is only in my head. So the internet is changing how I get my information and what I think and do with it, how I see people and other people, and my own personal safety. The sad thing is those are important.
The internet hasn't changed the way I think as much as taken away the need to think. Everything is so easy to access; the internet is the ultimate form of spoon feeding. I love the internet and wouldn't survive without it. I depend on it for school, social connections, and entertainment. It is all of the earth connected in my palm. It is amazing and oh so convenient. It is instantaneous and requires only a few taps of the finger to find out virtually anything. It is truly amazing. I can’t wait for the day when it will take only a thought to access anything on anyone; when literally everything can be found out by anyone at anytime. The scary thing is that we are close to this nightmare. We are so close to this world. Before facebook was invented it was said that everyone is 6-7 connections away from everyone on earth. Imagine now with facebook and myspace how that number has changed. Imagine how few internet connections it would take to be connected with everyone on earth. Internet is everything. It records everything and publicizes everything. It is amazing. And it is so dangerous. The danger lies in the fact that the majority of computer/internet users don’t fully understand it. If we don’t understand where we are giving information and where we are taking in information, then how are we to know the dangers of it? Could we be feeding a sex predator? Or marketer? Absolutely.The internet has given me the tool to find out almost anything without help. It has given me the convenience of information literally at my finger tips. It has made me cautious of the information I am getting rather than going to a book where I would never question a published author. It has made me think about who I befriend online and who I share my information with. It has made me cautious of what I say because it is recorded and published. It has changed the way I think drastically.
Internet is changing the way I think in many ways. Internet allows you to think out of the box because it suddenly allows you to access much more than you ever could with just a textbook. It also provides a fast, easy way to get the information you would like faster. However, having internet doesn't always expand learning, people often go on the computer and take what they first see as the truth. The internet isn't always having a positive effect. For me, I like hearing what other people all around the world have to say. you can get knews from India with just a click of a button and everything can be accessed.
