Internet kills originality????
Feb 15, 2010

When you get homework at school, you usually turn towards the internet. Copy and paste the necessary facts and you don't really read it. This makes people less creative. They tend to 'borrow' the works of other people.

This destroys creativity and hinders development of culture. Sure, it's very easy to copy paste it, why bother?

But is it really useful??

Internet only kills the originality of people who do not want to work for their reports. Sure, it's easy to copy and paste, but if you really want to learn, then you wouldn't do it. There are school sanctions for plagiarism and in our school, that is not tolerated.

It's the same with our school, but people get lured in by the ease of it.
I have to agree with the fact that it is all in one's mind to be honest to their work. It is with the educators to give student themes which involve the active engaagement of students without the internet.

Actually it does help people to speak their hearts in the web. Blogs, articles can help people develop their communication skills and its a great way for people to get recognized.

But thats only for people who want to. People who are lazy will get lazier. And it won't help their skills either. Internet has two faces but as its the way of the world to use the bad way the most. sad

The internet does anything but kill originality.

When conducting research, if your first thought is to copy and paste somebody's work as your own, then it is you who is killing originality.

There is nothing saying that you couldn't copy word for word out of a book. I am sure people did before the internet.

I repeat, the internet does not kill creativity. The internet is a forum for originality. It is up to the user.

Copy and pasting does kill originality sometimes. But in most cases, people are unique but they just copy and paste because of laziness.

It does only because of really good sites like wiki's and ask.com. But on the other hand, it is only for a good cause because at least people are doing their homework and are trying to get good grades.

I believe that it does not affect the originality of a person's work because they use cited information on an assignment. It is very helpful for people to find the fact before you began rambling about a topic, unless it is strictly opinion. I say use the internet people, it's the best thing sice sliced bread stick

Its true that no matter technology has given us so many things but on the other hand it has snatched many things from us. Most people are interested in spending time with online activities and turned as internet addicts which leads to the reduction in their socializing activities in the real world.
