Abstract:This study explored primary school students’ usage of Internet for learning, and their attitudes towards using Internet. In this study, we recruited twenty-eight primary school students to write diaries on their Internet usage for learning and conducted focus groups to understand their thoughts and attitudes. The results showed that most primary students in our study regarded the Internet as a tool for fun rather than learning, so they rarely use Internet for learning. This study suggests that social factors like curricular requirements and parents’ attitude towards Internet have much influence on primary school students’ behaviors and attitudes towards the Internet, and provides advice for future guideline to motivate children to make better use of the Internet for their activities including learning in their everyday life.
