RePEc emerged from the NetEc group ,
created in 1992, which received support for its WoPEc project between
1996-1999 by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) of the UK
Higher Education Funding Councils, as part of its Electronic Libraries
Programme (eLib). RePEc was created in June 1997 to decentralize the
work done by WoPEc and thus make it independent of grant needs. RePEc is
then guaranteed to remain free for all parties.
Yet, survey results also indicate teachers face a variety of challenges in incorporating digital tools into their classrooms, some of which, they suggest, may hinder how students are taught to conduct research online. Virtually all teachers surveyed work in a school that employs internet filters (97%), formal policies about cell phone use (97%) and acceptable use policies or AUPs (97%). The degree to which teachers feel these policies impact their teaching varies, with internet filters cited most often as having a “major impact” on survey participants’ teaching (32%). One in five teachers (21%) say cell phone policies have a “major” impact on their teaching, and 16% say the same about their school’s AUP. These impacts are felt most strongly among those teaching the lowest income students.
If you have time and opportunity, show it to your instructor to revise. Otherwise, you may estimate it yourself.
