You have been told incorrectly. The ISS does not have direct internet capability. The crew receives email from the internet via a store and forward system. The crew members can view preloaded web pages on the ISS server but they cannot go and look at any internet site they want whenever they want.

During Expedition 14, ARISS expects to have one ARISS school contact per month rather than approximately one per week. It is also anticipated that there many not be many general contacts.
I have been told they have internet access up there could be in the mean time someone can suggest them this site http://qsonet.com/programs.html . It will be quite an addition in 2007 for SAREX and it will be better sooner than never as someone can suggest to get rid of the cons of radioing when it's time to make HAM looking "techies". There is a reality today and its called Internet!
As probably some can argue it is not ham radio as the SSB was not really to overcome AM, but i don't know if a school facing the installation of an internet base radio versus a real on the air setup what they will choose? If a suggestion have to be made it is better she came from us than someone else... who will not be bothered by the segment call sign false problems...
To help those who still live in the past here is some music for them:
