Col­lab­o­rat­ing on a school project

KIM­BER­LEY could not to work on her group project. For the first time, she and her group would be do­ing their re­search on­line. They would use search en­gines on the in­ter­net to look for the in­for­ma­tion they needed.

Af­ter school, Kim­ber­ley went to the li­brary with her group mem­bers, Dar­ren and Danny, to use the com­put­ers there. Kim­ber­ley used the ‘Ya­hoo’ search en­gine to search for in­for­ma­tion on the An­des Moun­tains. Danny used the ‘Google’ search en­gine to search for the in­for­ma­tion. Click­ing on the rel­e­vant web sites, Kim­ber­ley and Dar­ren searched for the in­for­ma­tion they needed. Aaron peered over their shoul­ders at the in­for­ma­tion they found and helped them to sieve out what was im­por­tant. They found it eas­ier and faster to get the in­for­ma­tion this way than to browse through the books at the li­brary. Af­ter Dar­ren had writ­ten down all the in­for­ma­tion they needed, Kim­ber­ley searched for im­ages of the An­des Moun­tains. She found many pic­tures. They had a hard time se­lect­ing just a few. Fi­nally, when they had cho­sen what they wanted, they saved ev­ery­thing into a thumb drive.

They could not wait to work on their project the next day with the in­for­ma­tion that they had gath­ered. They had so much fun us­ing the in­ter­net that they hoped to have more projects in the fu­ture.
