The excessive use of Internet and handheld gadgets is not only eroding students’ capacity as ‘independent learners’ but also damaging their basic spelling and grammar skills. It also leads to health concerns. The increased use of Internet and mobiles has the capacity to damage value system and may lead to ‘disconnected classrooms’ and ultimately may result in a disconnected society.
The benefits of Internet can only be made visible if its use remains in balance.
