Project: Create a “One Pager” Research Brief

Media Artifact: Web Literacy Poster

I wanted something I could use, so I made this poster to display and teach on in our computer lab. I was excited about this project because web literacy is still a new skill to learn and teaching techniques for helping kids organize web information is sparse, and also because my middle school acquired a new HP Designjet this year and I got to order my first poster on it. I used four of Wendy Sutherland-Smith’s strategies for internet research that I thought the most practical. The design is pretty simple, but I liked how it turned out so I plan to send the pdf to our teachers with all eight of her strategies in a printout for their tool box.
