Saving the Google students

With times of budget cuts in education, I do see school libraries as being important. To teach students that not everything you read on the Internet is true is a major task. The ability to question and analyze, and do research. Internet searches are great tools, but it is a huge challenge to find good information. Wikipedia is a great tool, but there are often inaccuracies, some of them deliberate.

I like this quote:

And to most kids, whatever they read on the Internet is "all good." I've been told, quite emphatically, that the Apollo moonwalk never happened, the Holocaust was a hoax and George W. Bush orchestrated 9/11 -- all based on text, photos or videos found online.

Saving the Google students - LA Times.
