Nowadays the computer is an accessory indispensable in everyone’s lives. Who hasn’t used a computer before? They are used everywhere, from banks, companies, and industries to restaurants, schools and hospitals. But do you know computers are more used for the Internet. According to an article published in an Internet page, “The future of computers”, 65% of the time the computer is used for the Internet.
The use of internet has increased and improved during the past years, it has become an essential part of our lives, Therefore many people depend on the internet for Communication, entertainment, answers to our questions and many times to make decisions for us. For some of us it affects the traditional way of things, in the text "Is Google Making Us Stupid by Nicholas Carr, Carr brings to light the positive and negative effects of internet use. Nicholas Carr Implies that the use of internet has made us lazy and has affected the way we process our thoughts, he effectively expresses the issue of the effects of internet and then support his debate with another argument of why internet use is beneficial. On the other hand in the text "Why I blog" by Andrew Sullivan, he only focuses on one aspect of the internet and his personal opinion of why he blogs. The internet affects users in many ways, we have become dependent on the internet, and it has become an important asset to our daily lives.
Such an approach, however, will not be either constructive or objective. The question “What positive things did the Internet bring to your life?” will very likely elicit a great deal of good answers. While trying to pin down the negative consequences of the digital expansion, one should bear in mind that the Internet itself is, first and foremost, an endless repository of knowledge available to everyone within a click of a computer mouse, and, secondly, a communication technology that makes possible friendships not just on the same street, but around the globe.

Integration of Web 2.0 tools, such as wikis, discussion boards, and flipped instruction, requires training and preparation for educators. Despite the commonly-held notion that using technology helps prepare students for life after graduation, many school districts do not equip teachers with the necessary tools to succeed. Some teachers lack confidence integrating different tools into their lessons. In order to increase teachers’ Web 2.0 skills, school districts must offer explicit training that models creative and effective uses for these tools in the classroom.
So the best way is teaching student use technology by right and liable way than banning them from school (Frey 42). Once again, the fact that modern devices bring many advantages for people’s lives is not deniable.
