How to Spot Truth in the Sea of Lies, Rumors, and Myths on the Internet

How to Spot Truth in the Sea of Lies, Rumors, and Myths on the Internet | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
The internet is full of crap. For every piece of reputable information you'll find countless rumors, misinformation, and downright falsehoods. Separating truth from fiction is equal parts a mental battle and diligent research.

How Important is Teaching Literacy in All Content Areas? | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

"Literacy is an Every-Century Skill

If you are a math, history, science, or art teacher, where does literacy fit into your classroom instruction? It's common to believe that literacy instruction is solely the charge of language arts teachers, but, frankly, this just is not so"

Why “Googling It” Is Not Enough | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
Has the Internet changed the way students conduct research?
"Make sure students know that the results turned up by a search engine are only the topmost layer of information about their subject: from there, they’ve got to do a lot of digging. Google isn’t the end of their search, in other words—it’s just the beginning."

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:


1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.


2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

''The '.org' websites are the ones that trick them most. Years ago we were taught that these were just organisations putting out information but if you look now lots of them show a particularly strong bias.''
