Guidelines for Students

  • Student User and Agreement/Parent Permission Form
  • Practical Application (Browser Use Page)
  • Web Site Evaluation Guides
  • Internet Driver’s License
slide5

Selecting Quality Sources

How to make a good choice:

  • Check the domain of the server
  • Think about what their “angle” or bias is
  • Look at who the Webmaster is
  • When was the site last updated
  • Using all of the information make an educated

guess about the website

  • Don’t forget anyone can post to the Web
slide6

Safety Tips

If you end up at a place that you do not belong, hit the BACK button, or the HOME button. If all else fails, turn the monitor off.

slide8

Favorites:In Internet Explorer to keep a site, you click on “Favorites”, then click on “Add”.

slide9

E-mail

  • There are a variety of email programs you can use.
  • Gaggle.net is a program for schools that allows you to monitor incoming and outgoing mail.
  • There are also web-based email providers such as Yahoo, and Hot Mail.
  • Standard letter format should be used.
  • Students working in partnerships can proofread for mistakes. Spelling counts!
  • Never use all caps, as this is like shouting at someone.
  • Emoticons are common place  as are abbreviations LOL.
slide10

Classroom Management of Computers

All computers face towards the room, not the wall. Never have computer screens facing where you can not see them at all times!

slide12

Use a HELP cup rather than a raised hand. It is less disruptive and allows other students to respond.

Earphones cut down the noise, yet allow students to take advantage of the sounds.

Name the

computers

Internet Log Sheets: students are held accountable for each site they visit.

slide13

Time Management Ideas

Two people per computer

Have students be responsible for time

(as much as possible depending upon age)

Post rotation schedule

Name and Number student’s floppy disks

slide18

Blocking,

Blocking will not allow accesses based on vocabulary.

Filtering,

Filtering is based on coding by ranked categories.

Monitoring

Monitoring keeps track of websites visited, but does not block them.

The Joys of Searching the Internet

“I know it’s here someplace. I just can’t find it.”

slide20

Subject Directories

~Catalogue of sites collected and organized by humans

~Called “trees” because they start with main categories and branch out to other subcategories, subtopics and topics

slide21

~Hierarchically organized indexes of subject categories.

~Subject guides tend to be smaller than those of general search engines, so results tend to be smaller as well. However, subject guides can lead to producing more relevant results!

~Better for a general subject than a specific piece of information.

Subject Directory Sites

  • Examples of subject guides include:
  • Yahoo: http://www.yahoo.com
  • Public Library: http://www.ipl.org/ref/RR/
  • Magellan: http://www.mckinley.com
  • Example of a subject guide for kids:
  • Yahooligans: http://www.yahooligans.com
slide23

Search Engines

Search engines rely on computer programs

called spiders or robots to search the web.The size of the database, the frequency of the updating and the search capabilities will influence the results.

  • In most cases, search engines are best used to locate a specific piece of information, such as:
    • a known document
    • an image
    • a computer program
  • rather than a general subject.
slide24

Search Engine Sites

  • Examples of search engines include:
  • Alta Vista: http://www.altavista.com(uses boolean logic)
  • Infoseek: http://www.infoseek.com
  • Lycos: http://www.lycos.com
  • Search engines for kids:
  • Yahooligans: http://www.yahooligans.com
slide25

  • HotBot: http://www.hotbot.com
  • Dogpile: http://www.dogpile.com
  • Metacrawler: http://www.metacrawler
slide26

slide30

AND

Searches for documents that have both words in it. Searching for human AND body finds pages where both human and body occur somewhere in that page.

slide31

OR

Searches for documents that have either word in it. Searching for human OR body finds pages where either human or body occurs somewhere in the page.

slide32

( )

The parentheses determine how And's and Or's are treated. Words within parentheses are considered a unit, and are considered first. Searching for anatomy OR (human AND body) finds pages where either anatomy or human and body occur somewhere on the page.

slide33

" "

Words or phrases within quotation marks are treated as a unit and searched for literally. This is especially helpful when the search term you are interested in contains the words "and" or "or."

Searching for "rock and roll" finds pages where the string of words rock and roll occurs somewhere on the page.

slide34

*

The asterisk functions as a wildcard symbol in searches. It designates any string of text that could stand in for the asterisk.

Searching for cook* will find pages

containing the words cooking, cooked, and

cookies.

slide35

Variations on the basic Boolean operators are also supported by many library

databases and Internet search engines. Known as proximity operators,

these include:

ADJACENT, WITH, NEAR, and FOLLOWED BY. ADJACENT and WITH require that the words appear next to each other, NEAR requires that the search terms appear in close proximity and FOLLOWED BY requires that one term follow another.

slide36

Web Whacker/WebBuddy

Software programs that will allow you to save websites as files to a floppy. This is good if you don’t have Internet access or want to monitor the access.

Lessons

Be clear in your objective! Have a reason and a focus. Keep everyone on that track throughout the lesson.

Don’t print off of the Internet. Use a word document that you can cut and paste onto.

slide39

You need to clean the cache after each class or they will be using the cache information.

Each time a new site is visited, it must be documented.
