QUE REPRESENTE L'INTERNET POUR MOI?

L’être humain est de nature sociale c’est pourquoi chaque individu ne peux pas vivre seul on a besoin des membres de notre famille des amis aussi. Quelles sont les avantages de l’amitié quelles sont ses limites ?
L’évolution de la technologie pour ce 21e siècle que nous sommes aujourd’hui, est d’une grande capitale, la communication ; l’accès facile et rapide ! L’outil informatique « internet »
A travers l’internet nous essayons d’obtenir les informations, les recherches, l’accès facile des données, exemple : google, la communication vis-à-vis sur l’ordinateur par le système de skype, la communication des amis et d’autres membres de la famille proche et loin du pays à travers la connexion sur Yahoo ; gmail et autres …
L’internet pour moi représenté une grande importance telle citée ci-haut. Nous essayerons de parler comment cette évolution de la technologie évolue au monde entier. La recherche des informations, des données et des ami(e)s grâce au programme facebook, « les internautes ont qualifiés que l’internet est le seul facilitateur de tout ce qu’on a besoin »
Bien que d’autres communications existent prenons le cas du téléphone, mais nous accédons facilement à l’accès rapide et viable. Donnons l’exemple pour nous les élèves à travers l’internet nous parvenons à accéder et recevoir des données grâce à l’internet, nous aboutissons à des informations publiés au monde entier…
Comme avantage nous accédons facilement à la communication, l’accès facile des données;
En effet l’amitié est belle mais elle est si rare a trouver il ne faut jamais la laisser ni la trahir car jamais elle reviendra un ami peut échanger avec toi des souvenirs, tes beaux et tes mauvais moments, tu peux ainsi lui confier des secrets dont tu ne peux pas en parler a un membre de ta famille .Ensembles vous pourrez s’échanger des idées se proposer des solutions pour vos problèmes. Malgré vos disputes personne ni rien ne pourras vous séparer. L’amitié est pleine de promesses toujours tenues sans jamais d’infidélité. Cette amitié devient dangereuse si on choisit de mauvaises personnes car un ami n’est pas quelqu’un qui te menace ni celui qui rejet non plus qui t’ignore et aime te faire sentir coupable.
A présent quels sont les avantages perçus du réseau chez les étudiants, enseignants et chercheurs?
Les avantages les plus cités par les universitaires sont entre autres: > la possibilité de recherche documentaire et d'information;
> la possibilité de communiquer, d'échanger avec le reste du monde; > la possibilité de s'informer, de découvrir le monde étant sur place; > la possibilité de se former, de suivre des cours à distance;
> l'accessibilité et la rapidité du réseau.
Ils sont 60% à avoir souligné comme avantages: la recherche d'information, la communication et la lecture d'information. 17,1% mettent l'accent sur les possibilités de se former, de suivre des cours en ligne. Le même pourcentage voit les avantages dans l'accessibilité et la rapidité du réseau.
"l'avantage d'intenet, c'est qu'il permet de mettre l'information
à la disposition de tout le monde. L'accès à l'information est démocratisé.
on peut se former librement de façon autonome"
"Tout ce qu'on trouve sur Internet est quelque part consigné dans les livres. Le seul avantage de l'Internet par rapport aux publications imprimées est sa rapidité et son accès facile"
''Internet c'est des informations de toute nature sur tous les sujets, généralement en libre consultation. C'est aussi l'actualité mondiale, les informations de l'autre bout
de la planète, consultables à tout moment de la journée. C'est un réseau mondial, qui permet de relier les ordinateurs du monde entier entre eux, et c'est une immense source. L'ouverture sur le monde est à portée de main. Internet nous donne ce qu'on ne trouve pas dans les cours" affirme avec conviction S S, étudiant M2 chimie
Parmi les avantages cités par les filles, "La découverte du monde" figure en première place étudiante'' Internet nous permet de découvrir de nouvelles connaissances, le monde et beaucoup d'autres choses"
Dans mon opinion je vois que l’amitié est un sentiment très profond dont il faut prendre soin mais attention quelque amitié peuvent rendre la vie morose au lieu de l’embellir. Petit ou grand, fille ou garçon , femme ou homme , on a besoin d'entretenir des relations avec des personnes de notre milieu social .Des rapports durent et transforment en amitié , alors quels sont les avantages et inconvénients de l'amitié ?

On dit que l'amitié rassemble deux corps en un seul âme , ce qui veut dire les amis deviennent plus que frères ou sœur , donc chaque relation qui est forte a certainement des avantages , on cite qu'on peut s'exprimer librement sans avoir honte , puis le partage de secrets qui offre des solutions pour plusieurs problèmes , aussi le sentiment de solitude diminue ou presque s'annule en amitié.
Néanmoins, cette liaison a pas mal d'inconvénients si on ne sait pas comment la conserver , qui se résume dans le mauvais malentendu entre amis , en outre les mensonges détruisent l'amitié , finalement la trahison qui tue la relation .Quant aux étudiants, leurs propos tournent autour des aspects "information et communication, ''Internet d'accéder facilement à l'information, la communication est pratiquement gratuite et très rapide" "la liberté: on est libre de faire ce qu'on veut. Internet c'est plus d'information, plus de communication, Internet nous facilite la recherche d'information. Ce qui nous aide considérablement ''Internet c'est comme un second maître".
La présence de sites obscènes, d'information pernicieuse, à caractère pornographique. Cet inconvénient a été cité par 31,4% des répondants;
La présence de l'information peu fiable, de qualité douteuse (14,3% l'ont déploré surtout les enseignants)
Mais helas il ya des inconvénients :
''- on peut se mettre en danger avec de mauvaises rencontres (adolescents bien souvent);
- on peut oublier la vie réelle et rester fixer devant son ordinateur via les jeux en ligne, les chats;
- les informations sont parfois mauvaises;

Nous ne cesserons jamais de dire merci à notre association world pulse de maman shujaa, avec cette bonne volonté d’aider les femmes et villes à se mettre ensemble. Que Dieu vous benisse.

What does the Internet represent for me?

The human being is by nature social. That is why each individual cannot live alone. We need members of our family and friends also. What are the advantages of friendship, and what are the limits?

The evolution of technology for the 21st century that we are in today has great value: communication and fast and easy access! The computer tool, The Internet.
Through the Internet we try to obtain information, do research, have easy access to data, for example, with google, We have face to face communication on the computer through Skype. We communicate with friends and other members of the family near and far from home through Yahoo, gmail, etc.

The Internet is extremely important to me as just stated above. I will try to talk about how this evolution of technology is evolving through the entire world. We collect information, data, and friends thanks to the program Facebook, Web surfers have stated, “ The Internet is the facilitator of everything that we could need.”

Indeed other forms of communication exist, for example the telephone, but we easily gained fast and reliable access. Let’s give the example for us students. Through the Internet we are able to access and receive data thanks to the Internet, we wind up with information that is public throughout the entire world…
As an advantage we easily access communication and have easy access to data;

In fact, friendship is beautiful but it is so rare to find that one must never leave it nor betray it because never will it come back. A friend can share with you all the memories of the good and bad times. You can share secrets with a friend that you can’t talk about with a member of the family. Together you can exchange ideas and propose solutions for your problems. Despite your disputes there is nothing that can separate you. Friendship is full of promises, always kept, without ever showing unfaithfulness. Friendship becomes dangerous if one chooses bad people for friends. A friend is not someone who threatens you or who rejects you or ignores you or wants to make you feel guilty.

At present what are the perceived advantages of the network for students, teachers, or searchers? The advantages most frequently cited by university students are, among others: the possibility of document research and gathering information: the possibility of communicating and exchanging ideas with the rest of the world; the possibility of developing one’s knowledge, of discovering that the world is accessible; the possibility of self development and taking courses from afar; the accessibility and speed of the network.
60% of respondents had underlined as advantages: the search for information, communication and the reading of information. 17.1% emphasize the possibility of self-development, taking online courses. The same percent finds advantages in the accessibility and speed of the network.
“The advantage of the Internet is that it allows one to put information at the disposition of the entire world. Access to information is democratic. One can develop oneself freely, with autonomy.”
“Everything that you find on the Internet is written in books somewhere. The only advantage of the Internet with respect to printed publications is its speed and its easy access”
“The Internet contains all kinds of information on all subjects, generally in free consultation. It also contains world news, news from the other end of the planet, retrievable at every moment of the day. It is a worldwide network, that allows all the computers in the world to be linked together, and that is an immense resource. The opening of the world is right at hand. The Internet offers us what we don’t find in class” affirms with conviction S.S., studying M2 Chemistry

Among the advantages cited by girls is, "the discovery of the world.” This was the most important thing for the students" the Internet permits us to discover new knowledge of the world and many other things.”

In my opinion, I see that friendship is a very deep feeling that you have to take care of, but pay attention, some friendships can render life morose instead of making it better. Small or big, girl or boy, woman or man, we need to take care of relationships with people in our social milieu. Relationships last and transform into friendship, so what are the advantages and disadvantages of friendship?

It is said that friendship resembles two bodies with just one soul, which means that friends become more than brothers or sisters. Thus, each relationship which is so strong certainly has some advantages, for example one can express oneself freely without being ashamed then share secrets and offer solutions for problems, and, in addition, the feeling of solitude is diminished or practically disappears through friendship.

Nonetheless, these relationships can have a lot of disadvantages if one doesn’t know how to take care of them. This can result in bad misunderstandings among friends. Lies destroy friendships and finally betrayal is what kills a relationship. As far as students are concerned, their searches turn around aspects of information and communication. The Internet easily gives us information and communication is practically free and very fast. Freedom means that one is free to do what they want. The Internet provides both information and communication. The Internet makes it easy for us to find information. That helps us considerably. “The Internet is like a second master.”

The disadvantage of the Internet cited by 31.4% of the respondents was obscene websites, with pernicious information and pornographic content. 14.3%, mostly teachers, deplored the presence of unreliable information of doubtful quality. .But unfortunately there are disadvantages:
One can put oneself in harms way with bad encounters (adolescents very often)
One can forget about real life and remain fixed in front of the computer doing online games and chats; Sometimes information is bad.

We must never forget to say thank you for our association with Maman Shujaa and World Pulse for the good will to have helped women and girls come together. May God bless you.

Bonjour Lucienne

Chère Lucienne,

J’ai traduit votre journal en anglais. Vous avez beaucoup écrit des choses importantes, l’amitié et l’Internet. Vous devez avoir des amies qui sont très chères pour vous. Vous comprenez que ces amitiés doivent être nourries. En même temps vous voyez la valeur de l’Internet pour apprendre et pour faire l’alliance des amies.

Bien à vous,

Nancy
