Many people think that the internet and the world wide web are the same thing. While they are closely linked, they are very different systems.
The internet is a huge network of computers all connected together. The world wide web (‘www’ or ‘web’ for short) is a collection of webpages found on this network of computers. Your web browser uses the internet to access the web.
So when you get home from school and ask to go on the internet, you should really say, ‘Can I look at some of the world wide web?’.
