Common Core: Evaluating The Credibility of Digital Sources

Common Core: Evaluating The Credibility of Digital Sources | CCSS News Curated by Core2Class | Scoop.it
Students today are hyper connected to information, but do they know how to research? Nope.


The ERIAL (Ethnographic Research in Illinois Academic Libraries) project found that“only seven out of 30 students whom anthropologists observed at Illinois Wesleyan conducted what a librarian might consider a reasonably well-executed search.” Clearly, most students are not “college and career ready” when it comes to research. This may, in part, explain the emphasis on research in the Common Core.

The Common Core ELA Writing Standard 8 requires students to navigate the Internet for research and evaluate the validity of the sites to support their claims. The introduction to this starts in Kindergarten and progresses each year.

Deb Gardner's insight:

Using ThingLink and images, Tracy lifts out ELA CCSS (W7 and W8) where technology and digital literacy skills are required. Additionally, there are several useful resources listed in her blog post.  


IMHO, these skills are a prereq to any PBL or other use of ed tech.  In other words, before one puts on the safety glasses and begins using the MIG welder, learn how to use the tool first, and the risks that go along with it.


Note that there are lesson plans provided by Google that are  differentiated for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels.

The Common Core states that college and career ready students are able to:

  • Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.
  • Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism.
  • Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
Deb Gardner's insight:

Catlin offers a shared Google Form that dumps into a Google spreadsheet helping students develop their analytical skills when validating digital resources.
