Empowering The BYOD REVOLUTION. Teaching Adolescents How to Evaluate the Quality of Online Information. An essential part of online research is the ability to critically evaluate information.
This includes the ability to read and evaluate its level of accuracy, reliability and bias.

Other studies highlight similar shortcomings of high school and college students in these areas. So, what can you do to more explicitly teach adolescents how to evaluate the quality of online information?

Properly implemented and supported instructional technologies and tools can help to make learning more engaging and more productive for students and teachers alike, improving learning outcomes and helping to prepare students for continued education and ultimately productive, successful careers. The nature of these technologies and tools and how they are being incorporate and embraced in teaching is constantly evolving, with new ideas and applications emerging every day. I’ve devoted many hours to learning more about this since I started this site in 2009 and I’ve been sharing this journey with readers like you. Come join the conversation! Check out the EmergingEdTech introductory video! Each week, I research relevant topics and write a couple articles (at times accompanied by a video) providing information, insight, and/or opinion about those topics.

Cogs of the Cognitive Processes I began to think about the triangular shape of Bloom's Taxonomy and realized I thought of it a bit differently.Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes in and out of the each level as they acquire new content and turn it into knowledge, I created a different type of image that showcased my thoughts about Bloom's more meaningfully.Here is my visual which showcases the interlocking nature of the cognitive processes or, simply, the "Cogs of the Cognitive Processes".
