Overview

For reluctant Internet users, the technologically challenged, and educators with limited time and computer expertise, this book is a must. Kyker offers dozens of simple reproducible activities based on educationally oriented World Wide Web sites. Designed to reinforce curriculum content, these activities emphasize the informational and educational values of the World Wide Web and give students entry-level Internet experience, encouraging them to spend time on each Web page. For all projects there are complete Web addresses, guidelines for instructors, step-by-step instructions for students, and 10 to 15 related questions. Advanced activities (Super Surfer and Kowabunga, Dude!) are available for those who wish to practice more sophisticated Web skills and further develop them outside the classroom setting. Additional chapters address hardware and software needs, Internet service providers, and Web site evaluative criteria, and give tips for working with students on the Web. Grades 3 and up.
