Internet Validity

by

A previous post highlighted some useful sites for developing pupils’ ability to question the validity of websites. Hopefully it will also help eliminate printing off entire pages and claiming it as their own research.  Another good resource to go alongside those already mentioned is: http://www.allaboutexplorers.com/

The great thing about this example is there is a mix of fact and fiction that the pupils actually need to read to extract the facts. It comes with teachers’ notes and lesson ideas and covers a number of different explorers such as Christopher Columbus. All in all a fun way to start to introduce some important messages.
