Abstract

The growing use of one to one laptop computing in K-12 has resulted in widespread access and use of the internet in the classroom. This study of Grade 5 classroom internet access patterns shows that most student access for research begins with a Google search and that the search strategies vary widely. A history analysis tool has been developed to help students and teachers reflect on their internet use. Preliminary data suggest that search strategies should be taught and monitored for effective internet use.
