Turnitin tool to help evaluate online resources (SEER) is here | Information Literacy - Education | 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.

Digital and Information Literacy Framework: Open University

Digital and Information Literacy Framework: Open University | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

What is digital literacy and how is it different from information literacy?

Both digital and information literacy are underpinned by critical thinking and evaluation.

The Rise and Decline of an Open Collaboration System: How Wikipedia’s Reaction to Popularity Is Causing Its Decline | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

Open collaboration systems, such as Wikipedia, need to maintain a pool of volunteer contributors to remain relevant.
