In the CyberTour, students accompany Josie and Joseph Cool as they visit twelve of their favourite Web sites. At each site, students must decide whether the Jos are making the right decisions. (Each scenario represents specific issues and challenges faced by kids when they surf the World Wide Web.)
These situations are intended as springboards to help kids surf wisely and begin to think critically about online privacy, online marketing, responsible Internet use, authenticating online resources and Internet safety.
Survey to gather information on how librarians share Open Educational Resources (OER)

Librarians (or media specialists as they are also called) say the school library has become less a static place to look up information and more of an active jumping off point for learning.
