Digital Literacy: Internet Misconceptions

With the time the use of technology has become so common and easy that we don't have to understand how do they work. Sometimes we start to mix up the meaning of different terms, interchanging one meaning for another without taking care of that. A common example for that are the words internet, web, and browser, what are totally different.The Internet is the worldwide, publicly accessible network of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching using the standard Internet Protocol (IP) or in toher words we can say that is the physical media. The World Wide Web ("WWW" or simply the "Web") is a system of interlinked, hypertext documents that runs over the Internet or we can say that it is the data. A web browser is a software application that enables a user to display and interact with text, images, and other information typically located on a web page at a website on the World Wide Web or a local area network or we could say that a browser(i.e. firefox, internet explorer, opera, safari) is the program we use to surf in the internet to access different type of data. This presentation show some common misconceptions about the internet that people have.
