The Importance of Evaluating Websites

By December 11, 2013

Follow me on:

While some teachers are still struggling to find their way when integrating the internet into their lessons, the fact is that it is becoming more entrenched as a method to enhance student learning each year. Across the world, teachers and students are turning to the internet to create lessons and complete homework assignments. While the web provides students with a wealth of information never even dreamed of 20 years ago, it also brings its own set of issues in terms of accuracy, appropriateness, bias, and timeliness. Therefore, it is quite important that we take the time to directly instruct students how to identify issues with websites they might be using. With this in mind, I've created a number of questions which teachers and students can ask to evaluate websites.
