Now an essential part of a 21st Century education, our students are learning to navigate the internet with access to reliable sources that provide factual information.
Jessica Lee, teacher librarian on special assignment, has a new blog post up on the DigiTech Teach blog site with information useful to educators and parents alike.
As Jessica Lee writes in her blog post:
“The Internet is awash in false or misleading “facts” and lots of sloppy research. Where can students find accurate information online? How can we show students credible resources? Using databases filled with vetted articles, students can quickly and reliably find verified information on a vast range of topics.
This year, the California State Library began providing all of the state’s school children and staff with access to several quality databases. The new databases include the Encyclopedia Britannica, ProQuest database suite, and TeachingBooks.net.”
