  • This lesson may be more of a review than an introduction for many students. It is an important lesson in that students may have experience browsing the Web, but not know the correct terminology and productivity tools for many aspects of the Internet and Web. Your students may be at different levels, depending on their ages; but most students today know many of the basic skills taught in this lesson. The important thing for students to take away from this lesson is a better understanding of how the Internet and the World Wide Web relate to one another and how to use this powerful tool more effectively.

  • Depending on the needs and prior experience of your students, you may choose to focus on different aspects of this lesson for extension purposes, if any. Students can pick a topic and then use a web browser to find relevant websites and bookmark those sites. The students can work individually or in small groups. Once students bookmark an appropriate number of sites, have students create folders and organize the bookmarks. You may choose to ask students to focus on a topic they are studying in another subject or they can research a current event or issue. Student can share their work with a partner, a small group or the entire class.
