Below are some reading skills and strategies that teachers can use with their students so they can use technology more proficiently
when they are searching the internet.
6 strategies for searching the internet:
Eagleton & Guinee (2002)
*Activating a student's prior knowledge will make their search more successful and meaningful
1. Be specific - try to narrow your focus
4. Be distinct - don't repeat your focus
2. Be exact - use only words/phrases you want to find
5. Be succinct - try to eliminate unnecessary words
3. Be direct - only search one focus at a time
6. Be concise - carefully & thoughtfully select keywords
Locating information in your search is extremely important. All your other decisions and functions rely on the search process.
Know what type of search engine you are using. Some search engines use text matching while others are organized by categories.
Ways they search: text matching and frequency of a word appearing on a page and also search how the pages are linked together.
The more a word appears and the more pages it is linked to then the higher ranked that website becomes.
A lot of the times the sites that are ranked higher are the results of fees that are paid to the search engine to rank their site high (Sponsors).
Reading Strategies for Reading on the Internet:
Laurie A. Henry (2006)
1. Analyze data - reading to find the most relevant information about your focus
4. Context clues - understanding key terms and meanings in the text
2. Skim and Scan - browsing the text for main ideas and key words/phrases
5. Text Structure - understanding text features and unfamiliar text structures of online texts is important for comprehension
3. Making inferences - deciding if this information suits your focus
6. Read Critically and Synthesize Information - being able to evaluate the information for its authenticity and relevancy
