R Sutton's curator insight, July 30, 3:54 PM

Caution is absolutely necessary in my opinion. Online learning will suit many people at various times and may further democratise learning and deliver learning that is more sharply focussed on specific individual or economic needs, but in the foreseeable future a blended model is more likely to be appropriate. The difficulty may be that face to face instruction/mentoring/inspiration may increasingly lie only in the domain of the wealthy (or wealthy nations). We must never forget the impact of inspirational teachers, especially with adolescents.

How do You Choose Good Online Sources? (Infographic)

How do You Choose Good Online Sources? (Infographic) | Online Learning Design | Scoop.it

Students often ask how to determine which websites and articles are good sources to cite. My answer is always, “Well, what do you think?” Students need to be able to think on their own. So, if your student offers some questionable sources, ask, “Why did you choose that one?” Try to get the student to think about the who, what, why, and when of the article and website. Let the student use critical thinking to come to a valid conclusion. They might just have a good reason for using the source.
