Using a Web Site in an Elementary Science Methods Class: Are We Opening a Pandora's Box?
Lewis, Scott P.; O'Brien, George E.
This paper describes the introduction and use of the World Wide Web (WWW) in an elementary science methods course at Florida International University (FIU). The goals of creating a web site include engaging conversations among educators, providing access to local resources for students, and examining student use of web sites and the Internet. The study focuses on undergraduate students with no WWW integration in their science methods course, graduate students with WWW integration, and graduate students with no WWW course integration. The students' frequency of usage, types of usage, and comfort level of using WWW are examined. (Contains 12 references.) (YDS)
