Finding Needles in a Haystack: Google Search & Web Literacy

You just can't copy & paste images from Google!

Finding Needles in a Haystack: Google Search & Web Literacy is scheduled for June 14th at Cooperating School Districts.  Do you ever have trouble finding what you are looking for on the Internet? Would you like some tips and tricks for finding those needles in the haystack? Save time and become more efficient in your research! You’ll learn advanced search techniques and discover easy ways to find images, books, videos, and other educational resources using Google. Be introduced to many hidden search features that will make you say WOW! After finding these web resources, how do you evaluate them? Too often, information published on the Internet is viewed as truth, but is it really?  We will learn how to find out who owns the website, who wrote the information, and whether it is valid. We will then explore sites like EasyBib to learn how to create a proper list of citations easily. Also, what about copyright? Do students have the legal right to copy and paste information from a website into their multi-media presentations and/or their own documents and websites? Investigating Advanced Search, Creative Commons and Fair Use will help you and your students become web literate in today’s world. This 1-day workshop runs 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and costs $149 for CSD members and $189 for non-members. Additionally, if you are interested in graduate credit, there is is 1 available with this course.
