Internet a fast and efficient way of learning

Yahoo HK recently established Knowledge +, which lets people share knowledge.


In just a few days, more than 7,000 entries had been submitted. I was surprised to see how IT could play a role in learning.


I sometimes prefer using an online dictionary to a thick dictionary. It's not only more convenient, it also suggests helpful references.


The internet provides the most up-to-date information.


I believe that computers will replace traditional teaching tools in future. I encourage students to try e-learning because it makes learning effective and efficient.

Thanks for your letter, Tim. It is exciting how technology is transforming - and the best part of it is a greater access to information. I use the search engine google every day. In fact, google is such an important part of our lives that it's even been made a verb - to google.


My favourite site for searching information is Wikipedia (www.wikipedia.org). It is an incredible online encyclopaedia that explains even the most recent trends and events.


Young Post is using technology to help you learn, too! Check out our listening exercise (Mondays, P8) - listen to clips on the YP site and then answer the questions in your YP.
