WEB USAGE AND PERCEPTIONS OF GRADE 11 STUDENTS OF DE LA SALLE UNIVERSITY SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COMPLEX (DLSU-STC): THE WEB AS AN INFORMATION RESOURCE

Justina P. Garcia

Abstract


The Web is a rich source of information brought about by modern technologies. This is widely used as source of educational information particularly in DLSU-STC, promoting the science and technology in the K-12 curriculum. The study seeks to identify the web as an information resource in K-12 education focusing on the web usage and perceptions of Grade 11 students. Descriptive statistics, frequency percentage and rankings were the methods used to analyze the data. Results of the study reveal that the students access the Web often mainly for research and projects, and that the Web is significantly used to complete their schoolwork compared to other information sources. Although verification strategies on accuracy of Web information vary, the students are cognizant to perform such methods for their schoolwork. Results also show that the students perceive the Web as a helpful tool in their schoolwork and a reliable source of educational information. Thus, they expect that their reliance and use of the Web will increase in the future. Significances and problems regarding the Web usage and perceptions of the students were discussed and several recommendations were proposed.
