Today’s students must think critically and analyze and synthesize information so that they can recognize the technical, social, economic, political, and scientific problems of the information age. This chapter describes how the vast resources of the Internet can supply communication tools and information resources that facilitate the application of a robust set of instructional methodologies in the K-12 classroom to address these skills. The development of information literacy skills in today’s classrooms necessitates instructional approaches that address complex sets of learning objectives and focus on rich, multidisciplinary learning. The author maintains that Internet and information technologies provide tools and resources that enable teachers to create powerful learning environments for educating students for the information age using student-centered learning approaches, interactive communication with peers and experts, and collaborative, problem-solving methodologies.
