Format: Paperback
Web Literacy for Educators by Alan November is an extremely resourceful book that all educators should purchase. The book informs readers how to enhance teacher/student web literacy while using the Internet to promote classroom instruction. The World Wide Web is a vital tool, especially for conducting research, however it proposes many dangers and challenges if not utilized correctly. The book serves as a guidebook to help teachers and students efficiently find, process, and evaluate information on the Internet. The book also discusses ways in which educators can use the Internet to enrich students' critical thinking. The author is an educational technology expert that wants to provide readers with basic steps to conduct faster, safer, and more productive student research and discusses how to judge information for quality and validity. According to November, "The Web has its own punctuation and grammar. It is different, but not much more complicated than the grammar of print and paper." I never thought of the importance of learning a website's domain name or how to read a URL until after reading this book. I also thought it was beneficial for November to provide readers with how search engines work and which search engines to use for specific age levels or specific information. For example, NoodleTools provides users with a wide selection of search tools specific to certain needs and encourages users to focus a research query. November also discussed several specific exercises and lessons in each chapter for teachers to implement in the classroom to help students with the Internet. As many of us know, students often accept information that looks authentic as the "truth." Students need to be aware that anyone can publish anything they want.Read more ›

EVERY teacher should have this book! EVERY student needs to learn about web literacy, and we are all students. This should be required reading for anyone involved with educating students (including parents!). I was making the same mistakes students make when researching. I will be more careful about where I get my information on the internet.

In all reality, who buys a book about web literacy? The moment it comes out it's out of date. Good lord, it still talks about Altavista. SERIOUSLY??? ALTAVISTA??? I bought it because it was required for my graduate course. Waste of money.

This book is excellent, though in need of a revision. Technology changes quickly so before something is printed, it practically needs updating! Alan writes like he talks, making the book easy to read and follow. Having met him several times, I can say with honesty that he truly loves what he does and it shows in his work. His other book that I've read is Who Owns the Learning and it makes a great companion book to this one.

Format: Paperback
The internet is a powerful tool in today's world, and for education especially - but some teachers, despite decades of wisdom and experience, are clueless still about this invention of the past twenty years. "Web Literacy for Educators" is a comprehensive guide for those types of educators who are a product of the last generation and have not taken to the internet like fish to water. Authored by Internet Technology Expert Alan November, Web Literacy for Educators addresses everything an educator needs to know in this modern era to make use of the internet for a better curriculum and how to address the problems it brings such as plagiarism. Enhanced with a glossary and index, "Web Literacy for Educators" is a must for any slow adopter of the web who values their status as an educator, and for community library education collections.

There is some excellent information in this book. It's a must for all teachers who use the internet frequently. I gave it a 4 star rating because several of the sites in the book are no longer functioning.

This book is especially helpful to learn more about the Web especially if you are a novice. This was the text for an online course through the University of Dayton. The text is several years old, and in the world of technology that means a lot. However, it is very helpful. I learned a lot. I would recommend it.

The book was in good shape and did arrive in stated time but took much longer than my normal Amazon order. I did not have the book for the first two weeks of class which made it difficult to catch up.
