There are some pretty bad things on the internet and it can easily be used to cheat, but, if used properly, it can be a great thing. For example: If you have children that are doing poorly in school, they could get help from the internet and have their grades back up in no time. It can help you with a problem you’re stuck on. You can save paper by using an electronic device instead. The internet can help you stay calm during assignments.
Electronic devices can help you with a problem you can’t figure out. If you forgot how to do something like, let’s say dividing fractions, you can look up instructions on how to do it correctly. Let’s say a problem is how much bigger is the sun than the earth, if you can’t remember the size of the sun or Earth, you can just look it up. If you’re allowed to use a calculator but don’t have one around, you can just use a digital one on an electronic device.
If you use an electronic device you can save paper.
If you’re writing an essay and use an electronic device and only use paper to print the final product, you could save at least a couple pieces of paper. If you use an electronic device to work out problems instead of a piece of paper, you could save a piece of paper about every day or two. If you make the lessons online instead of giving your students work packets, you could save at least 100 pieces of paper in a single day.
Using electronic devices can help keep you calm during assignments.
You can make sure you’ll pass by listening to certain music while studying and then listening to the same music while taking the test, this will help you remember more so it’s a bit of re-assurance. You can listen to music you like while working on assignments, which may help calm your nerves. You can listen to soothing or stimulating, sounds either one can help with calmness and concentration, such as rainfall, wind, fire, birds, and coffee shop.
As you now can probably tell, when used properly the internet can be a great thing. Using electronics can help you on problems, save paper, and keep you calm and concentrated. If you want to use electronics more, talk to your teachers or the principal.
