Online Education is become the norm of students for all ages and ethnicities, and is
even present in traditional learning. Research had found that older students that take online
classes pull information form prior knowledge but younger students have a better sense of
accomplishment after taking an online class. This article also talks about how students of
different cultures looked at this course with either a positive or negative attitude and that
affected their work.

Most students in todays society come to school with multiple personal technical devises.
Their is a big push from students for teachers to have less face to face time and more online
learning. Though the results have been mixed on whether or not technology is better for
students, the push for online classes still goes up.

There is a huge rush and push for online education in the college setting. In the last 25
years, online education has been the fastest growing thing and it might be due to the increasing
tuition rates universities have. Universities are realizing that if they want to keep up they need to
look into online education.

Part 4:
During this project I thought that it was going to be pretty easy. I have been to a library
before and have looked up articles on line. After I had completed all parts of this project I have
come to realize that I know more about finding articles and books online than I know how to in
an actual library. This was very surprising to me but it go to show that this is how I was raised. I
was taught in a technology based society and online was available for a good portion of my life.
When I think of being informationally literate the first thing that came to my mind was just
knowing information. After reading and watching the videos in class I have to come to realize
that I was wrong. Being informationally literate is being able to find the information that you
need. Being able to find a book or an article in the most efficient way is very beneficial to
teachers. When a teacher is trying to plan a lesson plan they do not want to have to spend extra
time trying to find an article that will work for them.

I believe that as a student it is very important how to access information online as well as
in a library. In todays society we look for everything on the internet, but some of the information
is not correct. Being able to find reliable information that can be used in our academic and
professional life will be beneficial. Being able to find a book in a library will one day be unheard
of, but having those skills will allow you to find different information that might not be on the
internet. It will also be important for teachers to teach their students how to properly find reliable
information. The other part of this project was learning how to cite the articles that we had to
find. plagiarism is a big issue in schools so properly citing information will help the students in
the long run. If students learn for the beginning just how important citing their information is
maybe they will be less likely to do it when they get to the real world. When I was in middle
school and high school I always thought citing information was really hard and annoying. After
having learned the proper way and not being told to plug the information into a website, citing is
very easy. If I can get that concept across to my students, they will be able to use that skill later
in their life.
