Yahooligans! Teachers' Guide - Teaching Internet Literacy

Yahooligans! Teachers' Guide - Teaching Internet Literacy - Tips and ideas for teachers and students when using or planning to use the Web.

From the site:

Internet Literacy is a hot topic in education these days. While rapid growth in the Internet has led to a proliferation in quality web sites available to students and teachers, it has also produced an equal number of poorly constructed and inaccurate ones. As educators and students use the Internet to gather and disseminate information, it's essential that they have the ability to locate sound, factual, and age-appropriate material.

The goal of this tutorial is to help you and your students learn Internet Literacy skills. Along with a description of just what Internet Literacy is and why you need to teach it, you will find tips, activities, and forms to help you and your students become savvy Internet critics. Once you have learned how to critically assess Internet resources, you can use our student activities to teach you students how to be Internet Detectives, solving mysteries and uncovering the truth about web sites
