Critically Evaluating the Internet

Review some of the resources available on Kathy Schrock’s  Guide to Everything: Critical Evaluation Retrieved from, including these:

  1. But I found it on the Internet!
  2. Five Criteria for Evaluating Web Pages
  3. WSI: Web Site Investigator: Information Forensics

Discuss the following:

When considering the five criteria for evaluating web pages, which of the criteria do you feel you used regularly, which will you begin to use more carefully?

  • Accuracy
  • Authority.
  • Objectivity.
  • Currency.
  • Coverage.

How important is it to your learners that the websites they are viewing stand up to critical evaluation? How would you encourage them to become more thoughtful of the information they find on the Internet?
