A TOUR OF EDUCATION RELATED RESOURCES

The American Library Association defines an information literate person as someone who recognizes when information is needed, and is then able to locate it, evaluate it, and use the information effectively. They know how to learn, and they know how knowledge is organized.

The Internet is an excellent tool for developing information literate students.

But, why would I want to do this?

This document by Andrew Topper describes the concept of collaboration on the World Wide Web (Web), including conceptual, theoretical, pedagogical, and practical issues involved in using the Web for collaborative activities and projects. The Web offers many opportunities for teachers and students to collaborate on projects in all subject matters and at all grade levels. Social interaction, which is the basis for much of what is learned in school and elsewhere, is also the concept underlying collaborative learning. Through participation in social interaction, students learn subject matter, communication skills, critical thinking, and language.
