What effect does the internet have on our intelligence and ability to learn?
Most of my knowledge, I've acquired online. Being that I went to a school where secular studies was a secondary education, I didn't learn as much as I'd wanted to in school. So I took it upon myself to do my own research on the topics that interest me. However, I see the negative aspects on the internet and I wonder how much of us actually use it for beneficial reasons. There is no doubt that the internet offers many more opportunities for proper education, but at the same time, the internet seems to be the cause of much ignorance. A secondary question I have regarding the topic is: is it possible to lessen the negative aspects of the internet?
One thing I'd like people to know about KCC students are the amount of people that feel unable to complete a class and drop the class because of it. Either people don't know about tutoring on-campus or they don't believe it will help, and they end up keeping their challenges to themselves. I've met quite a few people who dropped a class the first week because they believed they would fail. I don't have a solution, but the solution should probably include methods to prevent students from dropping a class from fear of failing. Inability to pass a class should be the only reason to drop a class, not the fear of the inability.
