WORKSHOP 8--USING THE INTERNET AS A RESEARCH TOOL
Students often take the use of the internet for granted. Two problems that are prevalent in NHD research are that students do not track the internet sources they use well, and they do not evaluate the reliability of information they find on the internet. Today’s workshop will be broken into two parts. First, there is a short lesson on using an ARS (annotated resource set) to keep track of internet research. Secondly, students must be taught to discern a reliable website from one that is not. Today’s lesson will focus on finding credible websites, and it will teach students some research tricks they might not know.
