Web Literacy Skills Defined: Navigating the Web

Did you know that most popular web browsers are free, and easy to install yourself? And that while a good browser can enhance your online experience, a bad web browser can limit your interaction with the web?
Learning how to navigate the web is a core skill for building web literacy. This includes everything from understanding browser basics, using hyperlinks and reading and manipulating URLs, to using available add-ons and extensions for better web functionality.
When teaching the web, we sometimes take these skills for granted, but they’re important and often a good place to start.
We compiled the following resource as a primer on web navigation, and to help learners understand a little bit about the history of web browers–what they are, why they matter, how to download them for free and more.
