Web resource

The concept of a web resource has evolved during the web history, from the early notion of static addressable documents or files, to a more generic and abstract definition, now encompassing every ‘thing’ or entity that can be identified, named, addressed or handled, in any way whatsoever, in the web at large, or in any networked information system

How to use this guide

  • Generally skills get more complex as you move to the bottom of the document although the order I have used is subjective. Choose a topic to research that relates to your current curriculum. Using these skills in a real context creates a much more interesting richer experience.
  • I would expect Year 3 to go as far as using the synonym search. I would expect Year 6 children to have covered everything by the time they leave the school.
    Some skills and Understanding are good to combine in a lesson. For example I might combine bookmarking, multiple word searches and understanding the order of the results in Year 3.
  • If you are teaching this in Year 4, 5 & 6 at Abbotswood there is a Google Survey in templates that you can use as a pre-test to help you target gaps in pupils’ knowledge.
