Task 1
Downloading Documents and Resources
In Unit 1 you had the opportunity to navigate the World Wide Web. In this unit we will use this skill to locate a specific website and download an education and technology policy document. That document will act as the focus of this unitís activities.

Step 1: Open your Internet browser (e.g. Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) either by clicking on the icon on your desktop or by selecting the ĎStartí button, then ĎAll Programsí and then the name of your browser.

Step 2: Now look for the address field in the browser. Browsers programs normally locate this field at the top of the screen (see Figure 1 below for an example). In the address field, type in the following URL: http://www.ict4d.gov.gy.

Step 3: Press enter on the keyboard or select the GO button with the mouse pointer. The browser will access the site directly. You will notice that this is much faster than using a search engine. Note: What does this URL, www.ict4d.gov.gy, tell you about the website? It is a government website (.gov) from the country Guyana (.gy)!

Teachers should be able to identify key characteristics of classroom practices and specify how these characteristics serve to implement policies. (TL.1.a)
