Cybersmart! Researching The Internet Wisely
I really found this video to be very informative. I totally agree with everything they are saying. One of the most important things I tell my students is that just because its on the internet doesn't make it correct. We can't send the students to Yahoo and have them research. An interesting point they make is that books are edited for the most part...websites not so much. Also, as teachers we have to provide interesting websites for our students to follow. We can't expect them to read a 42 page document of John Locke and answer 5 questions. Kids need action and adventure. We also need to teach the kids how to navigate the web and how to search through the different websites to find the truest answers.
