Common Core: Evaluating The Credibility of Digital Sources | digital divide information |
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.
