There are several positive and negative impacts of the Internet on education. For rural areas especially, the access to information that the Internet offers is an incredible positive force, allowing almost anyone to find the answers to basic questions simply and easily. It helps education in that when someone is curious about something (and therefore open to learning), they can find out some information to feed that "learning hunger" immediately. If you are curious about the ants in the backyard, or want to know more about dinosaurs or mythology... there is a wealth of information at your fingertips and you can enhance your knowledge.
