Description:

"A huge contribution. The coverage is very complete, and the examples are engaging and very informative." Cheryl Oakes, Collaborative Content Coach for Technology Wells-Ogunquit CSD, ME "Both the newcomer and the tech-savvy educator can find something useful from this well-organized, easy-to-follow book. A wonderful addition for educators at any grade level." Betsy Muller, Technology Consultant and Teacher Issaquah School District, Seattle, WA Boost teacher/student Web literacy while using the Internet to enrich classroom instruction! For many of today's students, the Web is one of the first places they go to for information. Unfortunately, doing research on the Internet poses many dangers and challenges. Both students and educators must become Web literate, which means not only knowing how to find information but also how to examine content, find out who published a Web site, and see who is linked to a site. This practical guidebook helps teachers and students effectively find, sort, and evaluate information on the Web and illustrates how educators across all content areas and grade levels can use the Internet to strengthen students' critical thinking skills. Educational technology expert Alan November offers methods to conduct smarter, faster, and more productive student research and provides basic steps to help learners judge information for quality and validity. This resource includes: Formative assessments in each chapter Need-to-know information for students' out-of-school, unfiltered research Tips for addressing plagiarism Explanations of commonly used terminology Web Literacy for Educators shows teachers how to navigate the Internet efficiently and wisely and help their students do the same.
