A study of teachers in the UK has confirmed the educational benefits of the Internet. The research has shown that the use of the Internet in the classroom helped all pupils, regardless of ability. Furthermore, teachers believe that the Internet has helped pupils gain better exam results. The reasons behind this success are simple to see. Pupils report greater interest in lessons when the Internet is being used. That’s because it provides a multi-sensory experience, as well as allowing children to have their sense of discovery stimulated. Childhood is a time when we are at our most “discovering”, yet traditional education stops that discovery process and instead “instructs” children. With the Internet in place, education is much more geared towards the natural instincts of childhood.
