In this module we have focused on three key areas related to Web Literacy:
- Critical thinking
- How to find website information
- How to validate website information
We have explored a variety of search tools and provided suggested activities on how to get your students thinking beyond the use of Google as a search engine, and beyond the first page of their search results.
With respect to validating information, we have outlined four practical tips.
We do not suggest that students go through each one of these validating steps every time they visit a website. However, the more skilled they become in thinking critically about what they are reading, the more they will question why search results appear as they do, and become better quality researchers.
