Association of Small Computer Users in Education (ASCUE), 37th, Myrtle Beach, SC, June 6-10, 2004
The information age along with the exponential increase in information technology has brought an unexpected amount of information. The endeavor to sort and extract a meaning from the massive amount of data has become a challenging task to many educators and managers. This research is an attempt to collect the most common suggestions to reduce the stress related to informational overload. Informational overload can be a major source of stress and often confusion. Some facts concerning informational overload are discussed. Further, it invites the reader to explore some of the advance features found in major search engines such as Google.com, Yahoo.com and Mamma.com. Understanding Boolean search and utilizing advance searches can alleviate the problem associated with informational glut. Finally, by being aware of the problems caused by informational excess, a learner is headed to a more manageable and a more productive learning environment. [For complete proceedings, see ED490093.]
