impure Just getting started
Default How has the internet improved your academic experience?

I used to make websites back in 7th grade and had to self-teach myself HTML.. As I got better at HTML I had a better time learning complex things in school.

anyways, pretty simple question, I want to know how the internet has improved your academic experience

Frankly, I blame the internet for my short attention span. Whether I'm right or wrong, I can't help but feel that without the internet I'd be so much better at so many things.

I don't think it's helped me a whole lot in the academics department either, unless you count reading stuff on Wikipedia just to learn more about it.

I actually prefer to study from books rather than the internet.

The internet's very important to me, but for less obvious reasons. When I'm interested in something, I use the internet to find a good rundown on what it's about. Say a style of music theory. If I'm still interested I look into books for more details, because there's only so much you can get for free and books are just kinda cool. If it wasn't for the internet I wouldn't have interests in as many things as I have because the internet's offered a gateway... that and there's a whole lot of porn out there.

I printed the entirity of both my eight grade and freshman science fair projects off the internet. Maybe my one for senior year too.

The internet was still kind of new when I was in high school....I did use it a bit in college for studies, but not much...
