The topic of the session of English Speaking club in Dnipropetrovsk WOA center was “The role of the Internet in our lives”.
Today’s session started with the introduction of the new members and welcoming of the club member Roland who relocated back to Dnipropetrovsk.
The session started with the reading and translation of an article “The Difference Between the Internet & the World Wide Web”. Even the active users of the internet were not aware that the two terms are not synonymous and should not be confused.
The Club members watched You tube videos about the history of the Internet and the founder of the World wide web, Tim Buerners-Lee. This English scientist passed his great invention on to humanity absolutely free of charge.
Once some basic facts were learned from the videos we brainstormed for the on line quiz “Internet – fact or fiction?” However. The score was not very high-only 4 correct answers out of 10.Even the presence of 2 IT specialists did not help us to get a better result… But we had fun voting for answers! As always…
The rest of the session was spent discussing the good and bad things about Internet. The club members shared their opinions about the most annoying things in the Internet, about social networks, about internet lingo. The question that was the most puzzling in the discussion was about the technology to replace the Internet in the future.
