Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 25, 10:06 PM

Mia MacMeekin recently posted a new infographic that helps students learn how to determine if online resources are reliable. It is split into four sections, and each section has seven questions. The four sections are:

* Who wrote it?

* What is it for?

* Why was it written?

* When was it written?

With the additional questions students should be able to determine if the site is relevant to their research, and use critical thinking skills as they come to their decision.

This is an area where many students struggle, and this visual may help them become more comfortable in learning how to evaluate information.
