Introduction

Your head-teacher has decided to stop all access to the Internet at school. Write a letter in which you try to persuade him or her to change this decision. Dear Mr P, It has come to my attention that you have banned internet access for all pupils. It is my belief, however that this decision is unjust, and counter-productive. As I am sure you know, the Internet has developed dramatically over the course of the past decade. It has evolved from a basic-communicative tool, to the most powerful contrivance of the day. It is possible to collate almost any information and trove facts as scarce as "who died on December 1, 1909". ...read more.

I am sure you are wondering why I am so passionate for my cause. The internet provides information for almost every topic imaginable. Furthermore, web-forums, such as "Yahoo!

Answers that provide a positive and useful response will be marked positively, whereas those that don't will be marked negatively. Students will, therefore, be able to use their initiative to decide which answers they will listen to. Subject teachers will then have the ability to give credence to notions mentioned on the internet, enhancing the academic capacity of their students. ...read more.

Conclusion

The internet, however, is not only useful for academia; it is also useful for enhancing the student social awareness's. Websites such as "Facebook" open up a wide-social network. Many students, however, lack the understanding of the posing dangers. Using a variety of the internets resources, including Facebook, a student's knowledge concerning the dangers of the internet could be nurtured. They would not only become more socially aware in the 'CIBER-world', but also in the physical world. As you can see there are major advantages to the internet. Your anxieties, as a head-master, could be addressed using simple and effective, web-restriction software. The internet would allow you, and your school, to nurture your student's abilities so that they are fully prepared for the wider world. I hope that you seriously reconsider your current views on the internet. J. S ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
