Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? When doing research, it is better to use printed materials such as books and articles than it is to use the internet.
Everyone has different ideas on this issue that, it’s better to use printed. Materials such as books and articles than it is to use the internet. In my opinion, if I had to choose, I wouldn’t say I agree or disagree with this statement, because I see it from two different perspectives and I also have a few arguments on why I agree or disagree. In support of my assertions, which I will explore in the subsequent paragraphs. Let’s talk about its pros and cons, first and foremost, I will talk about the pros of reading from books or articles, its extremely portable, readily available, comfortable to use, and just with adequate light print materials can be used anywhere and anytime, plus it doesn’t damage your eyes far the more it's dangerous for kids because their eyes are very sensitive and in my opinion, it's better to teach a child to read using a printed material than a soft copy. Also, sources of information from books are more reliable than those found online but still, it is considered by a few individuals that a kid should be taught to read through the resources available online. Let’s talk about the pros of the Internet, Internet is the quickest and cheapest way source of information compared to books, not only is it quick and cheap it is but also contains the huge and latest source of information. Many people didn’t know that you can get the latest information at the most a few hours after the information is out just by single research on the internet and the best thing about it, is that it’s free, which helps students especially when they can’t afford it or just didn’t have time to buy books or go to the library. For example, when you can’t find the book you need in the library or bookshop you can always find it on the internet and it helps a lot. As you can see, you can improve your work a lot by using internet as a source of information, and it can be extremely helpful if you know hot to utilize it.
