Here is one of the sources we follow to develop insight into how we all make use of the Internet. The Pew Internet and American Life Project has made a commitment to chronicle our developing and changing use of the Internet. Part of the project is devoted to providing basic statistics — who uses the Internet and for what.
Some attention is given to the use of the Internet in Schools. A late 2002 survey indicated that students make use of the Internet to address school tasks, but often outside of school and without the guidance of educators.
