This course will help participants develop stronger skills for searching and using information from the web. Based on Alan November's book Web Literacy for Educators, participants will learn to contrast various search engines, to utilize URL information and advanced search techniques to generate better searches, and to validate electronic information. Utilization of other information tools like cell phone searches and RSS will also be covered. Participants will examine/discuss the importance of students acquiring these skills in their educational setting and the implications of using these tools in their learning environment. Participants are responsible for acquiring the book prior to the start of the class.
