Thesis Statement

Internet is the most common source of information for end users across the globe. In addition, it caters for everything a user could possibly research for on and thus provides the best means for finding information. The internet can be described as a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks, of local to global scope, that are linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless and optical networking technologies. Internet is the best way of finding information for the students of Sangam SKM College, Nadi. An advantage of internet is that it enhances or broadens a student’s knowledge on various aspects of teachings. It empowers students educationally and provides tremendous amounts resources for any end user of any age. A disadvantage of internet is that it is severely damaging the mental and physical health of children and young adults. This may be through addiction, explicit contents and plagiarism.

Secondly, information was also collected through personal interviews conducted within the school. Seven students were interviewed to get their thoughts on the Internet’s responsibility in empowering us as students. Three teachers were also interviewed from different departments namely; Language, Science and Mathematics.
