At its core, problem-based learning offers students a "messy," complex problem that requires research and critical thinking to resolve. Because the Internet is such a powerful research tool, it is tailor-made for use in problem-based learning. This guide coaches both educators and students on using the Internet to solve complex problems. Teachers are introduced to how the Internet is organized and how to access its resources without too much technical information. Students are given eight problem-based learning scenarios that put them in the role of a particular character. Successful completion of these scenarios requires extensive Internet research and all of the steps of problem solving, including mapping and defining. Teaching notes and reproducible problem logs are included.Grades 3--6
