Book Description
Written for high school students and instructors, this guide will provide instruction for using the World Wide Web as a problem-solving tool-a skill that will serve students well for the rest of their lives. Teachers will learn how to exploit the latest Web technologies and use them as important classroom-teaching tools. Students will analyze eight real-life scenarios, identify the problem in each, seek solutions using Internet resources, and create resolutions. Each problem scenario that is presented has more than one possible solution and will initiate the same decision-making process as real-life problems while elevating the computer literacy skills of students. Coaching plans and guidelines for using the Internet in the classroom and developing new problem-based Internet units are provided for teachers.
