Successful searching on the Internet is a challenging and exciting problem-solving process. But where do you start? How do you get the information you want quickly without wasting time? And how do you make sense of what you find? Hosted by Eleanor Mondale, Internet Searching Skills is a comprehensive video guide to searching the World Wide Web. Through logical, step-by-step strategies, Eleanor and her virtual friend, Jane, explain how to access, research, evaluate and communicate vast Internet resources into results anyone can use -- in school, daily life or in the working world. Internet Searching Skills helps students and educators who are somewhat familiar with the Web learn effective search strategies to find the information they need easily. The video guides viewers through a model problem while presenting essential and transferable concepts: identifying a search problem; selecting appropriate search tools, subjects and keywords; using Boolean operators, phrase searching and truncation; evaluating Web pages; and the importance of processing, organizing, communicating and responsibly treating the information gathered.

The Internet is exploding with information from literally millions of Web sites, and effective search strategies are essential. Internet Searching Skills provides students with information on how to navigate with ease by using the right tools for every search. Developed by Joyce Kasman Valenza, technology journalist, consultant and high school library information specialist. Includes a detailed Teacher's Guide.

Only available in the US.
