The objective of this workshop is to help educators develop a framework for teaching web literacy to their students as well as design assignments which empower students to be more self directed. We will review various resources of how teachers can continue to learn web literacy. The main tools are Google search, Wayback Machine, and Wolframalpha.
The audience will be challenged throughout the presentation to test their own ability to design searches that lead to balanced results, various points of view, and global perspective. We will also look at tools such as Wolframalpha that provide students with the ability to receive immediate feedback.
