How can students know whether the information they find online is True—or Not?
We choose everything—from toothpaste to health care, from education research to instructional strategies—by evaluating information. How do I gauge the effectiveness of our one-to-one laptop program? Which presidential candidate will get us out of this economic slide? Is watching SpongeBob SquarePants bad for my child?
We also make daily decisions about whom to trust with our information. Does this company sell my information to third-party advertisers? Should I share my concerns about a colleague with an administrator? When I'm out of town, should I alert the post office to hold my mail or just ask my neighbor to retrieve it from my mailbox?
