Part Ⅰ Writing(30minutes)
Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short essay. You should start your essay with a brief account of the impact of the internet on learning and then explain why education doesn't simply mean learning to obtain information. You should write at least 120 words but no more than 180 words.
From the cartoon given above, we can observe that there is a student and a teacher standing in a classroom. When given a quiz by his teacher, the little boy says, with cell phone in his hand that, “once I learn how to use Google, isn’t that all the education I really need?” Having heard her student’s question, the teacher seems to be quite embarrassed and shocked.
We can learn from the cartoon that the Internet has exerted a great influence on people’s education. One of the most obvious influences is that we can acquire relevant knowledge and information rapidly and precisely via search engines, professional websites and online education. The internet has been served as a big school, a huge library and an informative book. However, education does not simply mean learning to obtain information. Studying in school, daily communication with people around us, social activities and fulfilling a task or a project can also be effective and indispensable forms. They enable us to enrich our knowledge, broaden our horizons, cultivate skills in communication and practice or even refine our character. All of these can not be achieved by the Internet education alone.
The Internet has exerted a great impact on many aspects of people’ life (of course including education). However, when enjoying the fruits of it, we should not overlook those traditional, essential and prevailing forms of education. By the way, do you think that institutions like shcools or libraries will vanish in the wake of the Internet ? (250 words)
