Are Children Smarter Today Because of the internet

  1. 1. Are children smarter today because of the internet ? Prepared By, Name: Md Jahirul Islam Sojib ID # 133 0152 640 Prepared For, Faculty Name : Dr. Deena P Forkan
  2. 2. Area of Research • I intended to find out if the parents agree with the hypothesis that internet is the main reason of children being smarter today. In order to find my desired information I analyzed the following research areas • Monthly Income • Do they allow children to use the internet • What electronics they use to access the internet • And many more
  3. 3. Methodology • For my primary research, I have conducted a survey of 30 participants who are parents of the children and provided them with a questionnaire with 10 different type of questions in order to get a series of useful data • For my secondary research, I used the resources of the library , online journals and also used the help of search engine ( Google )
  4. 4. Primary Data Analysis
  5. 5. 100 % participants are positive about their children using the internet.
  6. 6. In both graphs, 80 % of the participants agree that children performs better after using educational website and they enjoy it.
  7. 7. 70 % of the participants think that children understanding on the educational website depends on the layout of the website. And majority of the children learn very quickly (according to the pie chart.)
  8. 8. According to the bar graph,Children neglect their study and making them lazy. 90 % of the participants say so.
  9. 9. Lastly, I got 70 % positive response that internet is the source of making the children smarter. According to the response, I can conclude that my hypothesis has been proven true.
  10. 10. Secondary data presentation • Children of 2 years old, more than 90% of them have an online history. At 5, more than 50% regularly interact with a computer or tablet device, and by 7 or 8, many kids regularly play video games • ( Chelsea C., 2012 )
  11. 11. Limitation • The only limitation encountered during the course of this research is the sample size. It was difficult to get a proper representation of the population, as 30 parents cannot be said to be enough to actually represent the number of parents’ with children who use the internet worldwide
  12. 12. Recommendation • Since the hypothesis has been proven true, it means the internet plays a direct role in the children being smarter today. • I have some recommendations : 1. Parents and teachers should spend time with children in the online environment. 2. Parents should (in consultation with their children) set reasonable use and time limits of Internet use. 3. Full use of filtering and parental controls should be made both in the house and in the school environment. 4. Parents and educators should emphasize that the principle ‘Don’t speak to strangers’ also applies in the online environment.
