For my own personal learning experience, the internet has played a big role. Through my undergraduate degree, I remember looking things up or visiting websites to help with studying and using it on a weekly basis. Now, in the pursuit of my master’s degree I am in an online program so the internet and learning go hand in hand for me in several ways. I am on the internet every day for several hours a day with school work and not only does the internet allow me access to my classes and assignments, it is an excellent study tool. Without the use of the internet, I could not access the school library resources which I have used in each and every class thus far but I also would not have had this opportunity to work towards the degree in the first place. The internet has become a resource in learning for so many different people and provides the option to learn in the first place for so many others. On a regular basis, I visit the National Athletic Training Association’s webpage and try to keep current on some of the articles of upcoming research, even if it is to read one new journal article a month. As far as following certain authors to keep current with goes, it is not something that I am consistent with but am not opposed to trying. Overall, I think that the internet is one of the most helpful and most useful resources at a students’ disposal in the realm of learning. On the other side of that coin however, I am almost sure that the internet can be a large distraction for everyone at one point in time or another. There are other sites and webpages to visit that are not entirely educational in basis and would serve as a distraction which I can admit I am guilty of once in awhile. If one can keep focused and stay on task, the internet can open doors to providing endless learning opportunities and experiences.
