Internet Searching by K-12 Students: A Research-Based Process Model
Association for Educational Communications and Technology, 27th, Chicago, IL, October 19-23, 2004
Understanding K-12 students' Web-based research practices and the challenges posed by this task, can help educators assist students with learning to manage this complex process. In this presentation, I propose a research-based process model of K-12 students' Internet search practices. The model describes the ways in which students search for, evaluate, and use information on the Web and suggests strategies that students can develop to improve the effectiveness and quality of their Web-based research.
