Just FYI: in my opinion, the comma after "Sometimes" in the second sentence does not belong there. One of the challenges and dangers of writing about writing is that others will take potshots at your skills. 


These are apps and sites mostly for kids, but that does not diminish how useful they might be for adults who are developing language and literacy skills, especially English language learners.

Teaching Adolescents How to Evaluate the Quality of Online Information

Teaching Adolescents How to Evaluate the Quality of Online Information | academic literacy development | Scoop.it

students are more concerned with content relevance than with credibility.
They rarely attend to source features such as author, venue or publication type to evaluate reliability and author perspective.
When they do refer to source features in their explanations, their judgments are often vague, superficial and lack reasoned justification

Gino Fransman's insight:

hugely relevant at post-secondary levels too, students tend to assume that what's there must be right, more than to critically engage with what they're encountering.
