Product Description
How important is it for young people today to discern what information on the Internet is accurate, reliable and trustworthy?! In a world where the Internet and loads of information is literally in the pockets of our young people through smartphones, it is common practice when a young person has a question to "just Google it!".

This PowerPoint presentation aims for students to access and assess health information on the Internet.

Students are engaged in the lesson with a game called "Embarrassing Buddies". The game is based on the classic UK television show, "Embarrassing Bodies" whereby UK citizens visit a mobile clinic for a health check on an embarrassing illness or disease. In this version of the game, students receive a scenario, listing symptoms of an illness. They must then use the Internet to "Google It" and diagnose themselves.

Students then are guided through a series of questions and are guided on where and what to look for when analysing the accuracy and reliability of health information. They then analyse a website that they have used in order to diagnose themselves and discuss issues of "just Googling" symptoms.
