Internet Research Skills

by Ian Bron, educational consultant

This section is intended both to assist educators in teaching the effective use of the Internet for research, and as a tutorial for those wishing to learn more about Internet research.

The Internet, or Web (the terms are used almost interchangeably) is one of the richest and most powerful research tools available to educators and learners, enabling users to access a vast array of information from anywhere in the world.

Unfortunately, the Internet is also incredibly complex and is constantly gaining new resources and new tools. But is this information reliable? How do learners find what they need? How do they know what is important and what is not? Educators must be savvy Web researchers in their own right. The resources below are useful starting places to further learning about Internet searching -- for both educators and young learners.
