Validating Information Rubric
http://edorigami.wikispaces.com/file/view/validating+rubric.pdf
Validating Information Rubric
This is a rubric for validating information sources. This is the process of referencing and authenticating data from multiple valid sources.
With the emergence of Web 2.0 Technologies anyone can publish anything in formats that appear valid. Key elements of validating the information is reporting the information source, accessing multiple information sources and information type, creating linkage between the information sources and making decisions on the validity of information based on this process.

Secondary ICT: Web Literacy (online video)
http://www.teachers.tv/video/5425
Secondary ICT: Web Literacy
This programme reveals the critical importance for teachers to provide guidance to their pupils when using the internet for research.
A group of Year 9 pupils at Wortley High School in Leeds are asked to look at three websites. The subject matters are Martin Luther King, the holocaust and Victorian robots.
None of the websites are what they seem. The first two are fronts for racists and holocaust deniers. The last is a good-natured spoof. None of the pupils spot any problems with the validity, reliability or authority of the sites and many say they would cut and paste information from the sites for use in homework or other projects.

S.O.S. for Information Literacy is a dynamic web-based multimedia resource for educators, that promises to make a significant contribution to enhancing the teaching of information literacy skills to children.
You may submit a lesson plan and/or media materials to the S.O.S. evaluation team, or search our current database of lesson plans by using the "Resources" menu.
In addition, video clips featuring educators "in action" or "reflecting" on successful teaching episodes are continuously being assembled and reviewed by members of the target audience.
Educators can also search by the national standards for information literacy and related indicators established by the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) and the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) in their publication Information Power: Building Partnerships for Learning (1998). There is currently no information system available to the targeted audience that accomplishes the goals of S.O.S. for Information Literacy.

Alan Novembers Guide to Internet Literacy
How many versions of the truth are you looking for? Too often students accept information that looks authentic as the truth and this is one of the dangers of Web site information. Since ANYONE can publish on the Internet, learning how to validate information is an important skill.
One of the most expedient ways to validate a Web site is to look for clues in the Web address or URL. Knowing how to recognize bits of information in the URL can provide information about a site, its publisher and its relationship to other sites.
We call this the Grammar of the Internet.

Research Building Blocks: Notes, Quotes, and Fact Fragments
Children are naturally curious?hey want to know "how" and "why." Teaching research skills can help students find answers for themselves. "Notes, Quotes, and Fact Fragments," taken from a research skills unit, is a step towards the students completing a written report on a state symbol.
Here, the students will learn the importance of finding the words in sentences and paragraphs that contain the facts they need for compiling their research. The students then move to putting those notes into their own words, avoiding plagiarism. Embedded in this lesson is an online activity where students can participate in the fact finding process.
