The internet has been the most significant resource throughout my college career. Nearly all of my assignments and projects have led me to do some form of research online. Even if I used the class textbook, there were still times that I turned to the internet for clarification. If I simply needed a quick answer or definition, I would pull up google.com and perform a quick search. I currently do not have any specific authors or sites that I follow, but there are websites that I like to visit to learn new things. A couple sites that I use are: http://www.nsca.com/Education/Articles/ and health.com. These two sites interest me because they discuss topics that are informational for overall wellness.
Even if I am not using the internet for learning purposes, I still find that I am learning something new. When I am on the internet, I am constantly reading even if I get distracted from my original task. If my attention gets directed toward something else it has likely intrigued me because it is something i want to learn or read more about. Because of this, I do not feel that I get distracted from "good" learning; all learning is good learning. Based on my online experience, I can say that there is a strong link between the internet and my learning.
