LESSON OBJECTIVE: The student should be able to:

  1. Use the Internet as a resource for professional development, research, and other activities.

  2. Write a travel request memo outlining the cost of attending a professional conference.

OVERVIEW:

The Internet contains a wealth of information on a variety of subjects. The amount of information can be overwhelming. In addition, anyone can publish on the Internet, so you must assess the validity of the information. How do you know when to use the Internet? If you need current information or the topic is unusual, the Internet is a good resource. Otherwise, print resources like books, encyclopedias, and journals are best.
