Benefits of Getting on the Information Superhighway

A computer that is connected to the Internet allows you to turn your home, community center, local library, or school into a place of unlimited information and communication. The Internet can help your family:

  • Find educational resources, including up-to-the minute news, copies of important documents and photos, and collections of research information on topics ranging from weather conditions to population statistics.

  • Get help with homework through online encyclopedias and other reference materials and access to experts.

  • Increase reading skills by providing access to interesting materials and suggestions for additional reading.

  • Improve technology and information skills necessary to find and use information, solve problems, communicate with others, and meet a growing demand for these skills in the workplace.

  • Connect with places around the world to exchange mail with electronic pen pals and learn about other cultures and traditions.

  • Locate parenting information and swap ideas with other families.

  • Learn and have fun together by sharing interesting and enjoyable experiences.

In the next few sections, we'll discuss what you need to start using the Internet.
