Welcome to the World of the Internet! In this lesson, you will learn what the Internet is and why it is so important. Let's get started!
This video explains what the internet is, when it was invented and how it works. It covers how information, such as a website or a phone message, is sent over the internet. The video also touches on the dangers of the internet.
