Technology rightly receives the reputation for making teaching and learning tasks for both teachers and students. The availability of computers to students is one thing and internet connection is another thing that has escalated the ease of research works in this high-technology world. However, the question raised these days is if the internet is really helping the students in their studies or is making a negative impact that is making them worse learners. It is then the thesis of this paper to look into this consideration to see how helpful or destructive the internet is when it comes to education. Speaking of ease when it comes to the availability of materials to teachers and students, it is indeed obviously seen that the internet is a great help with just one click of a button. Compared to researching using books, it takes a longer period of time for a student to look for resources as well as the subject matter while the internet will just allow an individual a few minutes or even seconds to locate what he wants. In addition, a wide variety of information can be available with just one computer connected to the internet whereas, the use of books demands a person to find complete information from different books which could not be available in only one library. The price of books usually limits the information available to students which in contrast is not true to the internet.
