students are spending most of their time on the computer searching
for information on a topic. Little time is being spent on
preparation and planning for what they are searching for,
which results in ineffectual findings.
order to find information effectively, students should spend
most of their time planning what they are searching for by creating
word webs or concept maps on their topic. Effective searching
is done when most of the planning, analyzing, and keyword refining
is done away from the computer.
