When it comes to doing one’s homework, plenty of ways exist to receive help with homework answers. The problem with technology today is that sometimes answers exist online that are blatantly incorrect, yet convince the individual that their way of arriving at the answer is correct. The following reasons are why a student should not solely rely on the internet to arrive at the proper answer for any and all of their homework answers:
Not everything a student reads online is factual, just as students should know when speaking to someone if they are being told the truth or not. The internet is full of websites with false information that attempt to sway persons to believe their answers. Students need to differentiate between factual information provided online as compared to opinions of thought.
Online translators are not always 100% accurate. Many times it will provide the incorrect form of a verb, making students say to take off, as in their clothes, when they are actually trying to say to take off, as in an airplane. Students must realize that translators work to break down a basic language barrier, but they are not useful for actual homework.
Teachers are educated individuals that hold degrees from accredited universities and colleges. Therefore, if a student really need to do their homework, they should simply ask their instructor for help with their material. The teacher is 99.99% more likely to know the material they are teaching better than the internet. If an instructor is not available to help a student, they should look into peer study groups or tutoring services.
Asking the internet for help every time a problem is presented before an individual takes away from cognitive development and intellectual stimulation. If a student wants to actually learn material and how to make themselves a better learner for their future, they must attempt to do their homework without the influence of poorly constructed websites without any factual information. The more research on homework a student can do, the harder worker they will become which will in turn ensure that the student becomes a very well-paid and respected worker in society.
