Article on Students' Online Search Habits Published!

The Read Write Web published an article based on Norton's survey of students' online search habits.

Norton generated the survey results as follows.
"Between February 2009 and July 2009, Symantec tracked a total of 3.5 million searches that were submitted by users of their OnlineFamily.Norton service. The list of search terms was ranked from those submitted most frequently to those submitted the least. In order to be included in the list of kids’ top search terms, a search term had to have been submitted at least 50 times by registered users of OnlineFamily.Norton."

Take a look and see the patterns of many of your students when using the internet. It is interesting to see the parallel between poor reading habits and our struggling students on the internet.
