Today, the internet has invaded every aspect of our lives. People use the internet to shop, to research, for entertainment, to communicate, and for so much more... It has made the world seem smaller by allowing people to be more connected. But, for all its advantages, there are serious consequences involved in the rise of the internet and our increased dependence on its use.

The Internet and Education ๐Ÿ–ฅ๏ธ ๐Ÿ“š

Internet usage is becoming more popular among younger populations, and people are seeing the need for technology to achieve success in the job market. So, many schools are starting to integrate more digital platforms and assignments into their buildings and curriculum.
Italy is a little behind the United States in that educators recognize the importance of learning how to manage technology, but are still hesitant to make the transition from a traditional school to a digital school...
