INFORMATION SEEKING THROUGH INTERNET: DISCUSSION(1)

The purpose of this study is to gain an insight on how was Internet being utilized by the trainee teachers in the teacher training institution as a way to seek for information in assisting their learning process. This study involved a small group of six participants and therefore, conclusions on Internet resourcing skills among the trainee teachers cannot with any confidence be generalized. However, findings from this study does point to some initial, tentative, implications for the use of Internet in supporting learning materials for teacher education:

Perception on Internet

The participants uniformly reported how Internet usage is beneficial for their information seeking activities. Overall, they reported that using Internet is fun, helps increasing their knowledge and skills, gives a lot of information and helps connecting them with other people. The study revealed that trainee teachers who had positive perception toward Internet usage also used Internet frequently for their information seeking activities. As one participant mentioned, “I always access the Internet because I feel that Internet is very advantageous in terms of any facet of knowledge I need to find”. This finding is similar to with Luan et al. (2005) who found that pre-service teachers used Internet frequently for educational purposes since they perceived Internet as a useful tool which improve their productivity as students in higher institution.

Representative APR 391%

Let's say you want to borrow $100 for two week. Lender can charge you $15 for borrowing $100 for two weeks. You will need to return $115 to the lender at the end of 2 weeks. The cost of the $100 loan is a $15 finance charge and an annual percentage rate of 391 percent. If you decide to roll over the loan for another two weeks, lender can charge you another $15. If you roll-over the loan three times, the finance charge would climb to $60 to borrow the $100.

Implications of Non-payment: Some lenders in our network may automatically roll over your existing loan for another two weeks if you don't pay back the loan on time. Fees for renewing the loan range from lender to lender. Most of the time these fees equal the fees you paid to get the initial payday loan. We ask lenders in our network to follow legal and ethical collection practices set by industry associations and government agencies. Non-payment of a payday loan might negatively effect your credit history.
