Big Idea – Validating Information
Finding information on the Internet is one thing. Urging students to think critically about what they find is another.
In this section, we concentrate on how to validate information.
We do a great job in our schools teaching young students literacy skills associated with print materials, such as, how to locate information and how to find the author or publisher of a book.
These same literacy skills can be applied to Internet materials, with some slight adjustments.
