Turnitin tool to help evaluate online resources (SEER) is here | Library Update - Spring 2013 | Scoop.it

Turnitin worked with educators to develop The Source Educational Evaluation Rubric (SEER), an interactive rubric to analyze and grade the academic quality of Internet sources used by students in their writing.  Instructors and students who use SEER can quickly evaluate a website and arrive at a single score based on five criteria scaled to credibility: Authority, Educational Value, Intent, Originality, and Quality.

10 Reasons to Educate Elementary Students about Social Media

10 Reasons to Educate Elementary Students about Social Media | Library Update - Spring 2013 | Scoop.it

It is always interesting to find out that more and more of our younger students are becoming involved with the Internet and Social Media.

Due to their developmental age, most students have some kind of difficulty with self-management throughout childhood. But, this is to be expected with children. They simply lack the maturity, brain development, and personal experience to understand how to manage themselves in every situation in real life, let alone online.
