Students and Their Internet Search Strategies
My issue (Jan/Feb 2010) of "Multimedia & Internet@Schools" magazine arrived in today's mail. There is an excellent article entitled "What Kids Know (and don't know) About Technology." It is not yet on the publisher's web site, but you might look for it in the coming week or so. While doing a little digging, I came across an ed tech coordinator's blog complaining about students and their inability to search adequately. Embedded in this blog is a short video featuring a GOOGLE specialist on how to use their search engine. Lastly, Teacher Librarian has an appropriate article about all of this, including some strategies to help students in their searches.
