Usefulness of the Internet

What is great about the Internet is that it can be used for a variety of purposes. People connect to the Internet to browse millions of different sites, but overall some types of sites are more popular than others.

-The most popular websites are search engines. They allow us to find what we are looking for. They will probably remain to be the most popular for quite some time.
-Many people like visiting social websites that offer interaction between people. This includes chat websites and social networking websites.
-Sites that allow us to downloading files can be useful. A good example are sites dedicated to Rapidshare.
-Web portals offering news are something that most people visit. Reading news on such websites does not cost anything and that is why so many people like doing it.
-Websites hosting various games are also popular. They allow players to be entertained and to have some fun.
-Sites featuring useful information in a form of articles or videos are also being visited by many people.

Over Billion Dollars and Video Games

If you are wondering what video games have to do with over a billion dollars, then let me tell you that this is the amount of money that consumers spend on video games during a month. During one month it was $1.23 billion and this seems like a very high amount considering that the price of more essential items like food grew rapidly. I think that this clearly shows that people need entertainment and time for having fun, as much as they need other products, which are often considered to be a higher priority among many households. One of the reasons that Americans spent some much on video games is due to consoles and that there are recently many good games coming out.

Widgets

If you are a webmaster, then you were probably tempted a few times to put some widgets on your site. Widgets can be often useful elements on a website and that is why many people embed them. Nonetheless, some webmasters exaggerated with the number of widgets and they include dozens of various widgets on their sidebar. While it may sound like a lot of fun, it can drastically reduce the loading time of webpages. This might be especially a problem if the site does not have reliable hosting. Before you embed too many elements on your pages, please make sure that they are actually needed and that they will not slow down your site.

Browsing Websites

If you are anything like me you might spend a lot of time visiting various websites. Have you ever been in a situation where your Google search led you to a website but after entering this website you noticed loads of information and did not know where to look for specific knowledge that you so desired? By activating the search option in Internet Explorer you can easily find on a website what you are looking for. Here is how you can do it:

From the top bar choose “Edit” and then go to “Find” or just press Ctrl+F. This will open a small window for you. In this window type a word or words that you are looking for. Press “Find Next”. You will be automatically directed to a place where the desired word or words are located. Repeat the process whenever it is necessary.

I have to admit that this feature is one of my favorites and once you learn to use it effectively, it will save you a lot of time.

Computer Gaming

Anyone who plays computer games is often wondering whether he will benefit more from owning a desktop or laptop. There are advantage sand disadvantages of each type of PC, so sometimes it is hard to decide. I hope that taking a look at the following list will make it easier for you to make up your mind.

-When it comes to portability laptops have an advantage. Desktop towers are often heavy and bulky so it is not easy to transport a desktop that easily. That is why some decide on using laptops.
-Upgrading, on the other hand, is a lot easier with desktops. Desktop components are cheaper and are a lot easier to install. Most laptops do not even allow upgrading for parts like hard drives and graphics cards.
-Laptops are not only more portable but also smaller. Because they are also small it allows you to put them even on a small desk. If someone is a college students, then he might not have space for a traditional desktop.
-Price is also an important factor and desktop have an advantage here. Desktops are simply less expensive.

Fidget Spinners

Fidget spinners are the latest addition to the hype among school-going kids. Teachers and parents are in fact confused whether to allow or ban the usage of it. The internet has mixed reviews thus making it difficult to decide whether it is good or bad. I am sure that you know what I am talking about here.

Did you know that the researchers have come up with the proven fact that these toys greatly help in calming the nerves thus increasing concentration. It is known to help hyper active kids to be hooked to one place. The fidget spinners are also known to be a boon for attention deficit kids who suffer from autism, ADHD, emotional stress or even anxiety disorder. On the other hand, for the normal kids these spinners are known to disturb or divert them from listening to their classes. With reasons to state on both side of the coin, the debate of fidget spinners to be a being a boon or bane is still ongoing on.

The toy called ‘fidgets’ are not new to the world as it has been used for around 15 years. There are several teachers who support these spinners as they say that they have seen the most restless boys in the classroom concentrating and being focused on it while spinning these toys which otherwise does not happen for any reason.

Research is being carried out by the experts to learn whether the fidget spinners can really help in improving the concentration of the kids and to treat behavior disorders. The experts have noticed that the spinner actually massages the fingers thus improving blood circulation and in turn calming down the senses and relaxing the child to a certain level. When this happens before an exam or a test, it becomes highly beneficial.

There are several parents who prefer giving these kinds of toys to their kids so that they keep themselves away from electronic devices like mobile phones, tables or even laptops. It does not keep your child in one place as it helps them to move around and at the same time concentrate on it to prolong the spinning. At least, it does not harm your kids in anyway nor does it affect their eyes like being hooked to the smart devices.

With 3D printers out these days, there are kids using it to make the fidget spinners themselves. This has been proven to be a great development in physics for the kids with which the teachers and parents are happy about.

Virtual Reality and Education

Taking online classes is an example of virtual reality. Whether the online classes have a tutor or not, there will be lectures in the form of presentations which the students can follow. Making everything online may be difficult at the moment but with time all the required digital tools will be available. So what happens when virtual reality takes over traditional education?

Simple, students will not be required to go to schools or universities. By learning everything online and noting down important points, they make it. There will be replays available for online teaching lessons that students can play as many times as they like from the comfort of their home in case they missed something or didn’t understand something.

They can schedule an exam on one of the convenient dates online and appear in the online exam accordingly.

Books may not however go extinct. Along with the replays of tutorial lessons, students can buy hardcover or digital books, whichever they prefer, and prepare themselves for tests and exams.

Online classes are already available this way. Virtual reality taking over traditional education means online classes will become rampant and widespread.

Over the course of two or three decades, this is how I assume virtual reality will take over and how life would become more comfortable for students.

No need to wake up in the mornings, no need to gulp down a not so tasty breakfast, no need to commute or drive – life gets that simple and easy, all from the comfort of home.

Now comes the case of discipline. Will students rely on themselves and behave smart to attend all the online classes? Will they keep their promise to their parents that yes, they will act out of discipline and order?

In traditional education, there is always a teacher or professor to guide students all along. But can students stay disciplined and mature enough to stick to online rules or will they break all the rules and just be a vagabond?

The imminent danger also lies in the present day whether a student will stick to the values and principles and abide by the rules and work hard for a degree. S/he can easily go in wrong ways, get interested in weekend disco parties and become more fun-loving, without paying attention to their studies.

Therefore, in my opinion, although online classes or virtual reality poses a threat on future education, it is my belief that well-brought up children will be all willing to learn, graduate and eventually work. Of course, parenting does have a role in this. Good parenting will always suffice to give their children the right ethics, values and principles so that they do not go astray or out of their boundaries.
