Second Edition

May 2000 | 160 pages | Corwin

This easy-to-follow guide can help students and teachers — even the most technology-resistant — learn to solve problems from sources like Internet sites, news groups, chat rooms, e-mail, and other Internet resources. Topics include:

  • Creating your own lesson plans using sample lesson planners
  • Applying frameworks for grade-level objectives and skills
  • Dealing with information-technology overload
  • Solving any information challenge with six critical steps
  • Helping students harness the web with simple tips

An important resource for today's classroom, Net Savvy can help educators become leaders rather than followers in the new high-tech, high-speed, digital era.
