This book examines the issues involved in using the Internet in education. As with other technologies, the effect the Internet will have in the learning process will depend on how it is actually utilized in the classroom.
Part I discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using the Internet in education, along with those educational activities that seem more natural for use on the Internet.
To derive any substantial benefit in using the Internet for research, one must search effectively for information on the research topic. When the needed information is found, it must be preserved properly and used in a responsible manner. This is discussed in Part II.
Obviously, not all information found on the Internet is accurate, and not all Internet projects meet educational goals. How does one evaluate Internet materials for accuracy and for meeting curriculum goals? Part III discusses evaluation of web materials and how to get involved in collaborative projects in an effective and responsible manner.
Many ethical issues must be considered when using Internet materials or communicating using Internet communication channels. Parts IV and V discuss citation of Internet materials, online netiquette, copyright and fair use, and Acceptable use Policies.
This book is designed to assist educators in gaining a balanced view regarding the implications of using the Internet to enhance learning. It is the author's belief that such knowledge is essential for an effective and responsible use of the Internet in Education.
