The day some dread, others look forward to as soon as the school supplies hit the retail store shelves. Yes, it is Back to School time. Time to discover. Time to Learn. Time to purchase notebooks, pencils, calculators, and more. Time to watch the next generation develop those life-long learning skills. One of those skills is learning how to conduct research.
The Internet has made research easy compared to my high school days where we had to go to the library, search for books, journals, newspapers, and magazines looking for any information regarding a specific topic.
So how do we find the information we are looking for on the Internet. First, you must select which search engine you are going to use—Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ask.com, etc. A search engine is a web-based tool that enables users to locate information via the World Wide Web. Google is the most popular and commonly used search engine. Simply go to Google search and type a keyword, phrase or question. You can even use the Internet to access resources and apps to help you study.
To conduct research on the Internet, you need a device—computer, laptop, tablet or smart device. If your back to school shopping list includes a new computer or laptop, please give DRN a call. Our technical support specialists can assist you with the purchasing of a new device that is just right for you and your family. We can custom order machines. DRN also has laptops on hand for those who need a device immediately.
A computer/device with Internet access is an awesome tool not only for students but for everyone as it seems like as consumers we need to research new products and services, news articles, recipes, machinery, etc. daily. Even if we are not going back to school, we can continue to learn and discover new and exciting things through the Internet!
Best wishes to all for a successful school year!
