Aide à la recherche d'informations sur internet, au collège et au lycée

Abstract : This paper analyses web searching behavior of middle school and high school students through field observation in class. Two groups of students were asked a complex question ; they had to search the web for answers and to write down their findings in a structured document. The difficulties and problems they encountered concern : goal evaluation, document searching, identification of relevant information and production of a structured synthesis. Some difficulties are more specific of web searching, like building queries that match search engines’ requirements and selecting relevant references among the results given by search engines. If some difficulties may be reduced by suitable training, others should be reduced by help tools. Inspired by our previous prototype for hypermedia searching, we define the functionalities of a help tool that may reduce some identified difficulties.
