Written for junior high and high school students and instructors, this guide will provide instruction for using the Web as a problem-solving tool—a skill that will serve students well for the rest of their lives.

Teachers will learn how to exploit the latest Web technologies and use them as important classroom teaching tools. Students will analyze eight real-life scenarios, identify the problem in each, seek solutions using Internet resources, and create resolutions.

Each problem scenario presented has more than one possible solution; they will initiate the same decision-making process as real-life problems, while elevating the computer literacy skills of students. Coaching plans and guidelines for using the Internet in the classroom and developing new problem-based Internet units are provided for teachers.

Grades 6–12

Review by: Linda Starr, Education World - January 1, 2000
The value of The Internet and Problem-Based Learning: Developing Solutions Through the Web isn't limited to the eight actual activities it provides. The book also offers general information on problem-based learning and on using the Internet as an instructional tool. In addition, the appendixes include a glossary, step-by-step directions for creating your own problem-based learning units, as well as sections on how the Internet works, on how search engines work (including information about the differences among the various types of search engines and recommendations for special search engines for challenged learners), and on responsible use of the Internet. In fact, if it isn't here, chances are you won't ever need to know it! This book makes using the Internet for problem-based learning a no-brainer for teachers—and a valuable, thought-intensive activity for students.
