Web Literacy for Educators
SAGE Publications, Apr 22, 2008 - Education - 109 pages
For many of today's students, the Web is one of the first places they go 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, unfilted research; tips for addressing plagiarism; and 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.
