Here's How - Validating Information
Tip #1 – Read the Web Address
One of the rudimentary things students should be able to do is read the address of a Web page.
A Web address will always contain the domain name of a site - a name that is associated with the business or institution, and an extension. For example:
- In the Spring ISD web address, http://www.springisd.org/ the domain name is springisd.org.
- In the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus website, http://zapatopi.net/treeoctopus/ the domain name is zapatopi.net.
The "extension" within a domain name can tell you a thing or two about a site before you even look at it.
