Here is a handy website credibility checklist to use with your students to guard against misinformation from electronic sources.
Electronic sources provide a window on a world of resources. Of course, the most popular are e-books and websites.
There are also publications that you can download from websites.
Other sources include electronic images, blogs, podcasts, and archived TV programs.
YouTube videos are another favourite source of information.
Students need to be aware that not everything they read or view online is credible and trustworthy, particularly blogs.
