Internet made the world so much smaller. Yes, it has its dark sides, but its ability to connect people, to give us information whenever we want it, to teach and to entertain is astounding. The real challenge lies in using the best of it and not succumbing to addiction of mindless browsing, gaming, YouTube watching, or worse.
I am grateful for variety of amazing free resources available to anyone who want to be a more educated person or a more engaged citizen. I believe equity of access to Internet is a true equity issue, because one can truly learn anything (well, maybe not brain surgery) online nowadays. I admit that I am often taking it for granted that my daughter can learn math online, that she can play Minecraft with her friends, that I can connect through my blog to people all over the world. Then I think again how amazing this power is and I feel thankful.
How do you spend your time online?
