INFORMATION SEEKING THROUGH INTERNET: DISCUSSION(3)

Trainee teachers’ Attitude towards using Internet

From the observation, the researchers found that the trainee teachers managed to apply various methods comprising search engines and email services to search for information through the Internet. Despite the research participants’ claims that they always use Internet to seek for information, majority of the trainee teachers showed a passive attitude towards exploring other new web sites which they never familiar with. This point was noted during the observation session where the trainee teachers appeared to be only exploring websites which they already familiar with. Consistent to the literature review by Lau et al. (2010), it was also suggested that trainee teachers should explore more alternative search engines to look for more information.

This finding leads to a point which shows that the trainee teachers in this study were less dynamic in utilizing Internet as information tool for their learning purpose. Additionally, there were some cursory evidences that the trainee teachers spent a lot of time on other unrelated Internet applications, especially IRC. The unrelated Internet activities may contribute to the lacks of skills in using ICT for learning. This point was also argued by Matthews and Schrum (2003) who implied that students who spend time more on recreational Internet activities may know very little about exploring the Internet as an educational tool. Overall, these results clearly supports the view by Baylor and Ritchie (2002) which suggested that personal attitudes towards using Internet may influence the level of Internet resourcing skills among trainee teachers.

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.
