Skill Development for Maneuvering on the Information Highway.
Mosley, Barbra; Edwards, Gloria
To help students learn to navigate the information superhighway, a 2-hour pilot program with 10 hours of guided access time was developed to test a method for teaching the basics of maneuvering the superhighway and extracting information once located. This pilot was designed as a two-part instructional session. The first instructional session (Part 1) consisted of a seminar with explanations of global access to information. The second session (Part II) was a hands-on workshop allowing participants textual access via Unix and graphical user interface through America Online. The pilot program with graduate students provided information that enabled the restructuring of the course for graduate students in education. It demonstrated that a prerequisite was student familiarity with the computer, an objective addressed through a commercially available interactive tutorial. A second interactive CD-ROM was added to introduce the Internet. The graphical user interface was changed for cost reasons to an interface available on campus. Workbooks developed for the Computers in Education course were added. (Contains six references.) (SLD)
