Description:

The Internet has created innovative ways for people to communicate, collaborate, socialize and share a variety of information and resources. It has changed the way we live, work and play. There are so many resources available to the user for creating free web sites. Once created, this information can be immediately posted for the world to read. This means anyone who can type could theoretically create a web page. Consequently a large amount of the information stored on the Internet may in fact be false, misleading, bias or contain hidden messages. There is no device in place that scrutinizes data posted to the net. Therefore it is important for the user to analyze web pages before accepting the information contained on it as factual. Students will examine web sites to research and analyze the effectiveness of information stored on a web page.
