Educating Students to be Their Best IN and FOR the World!
Information - starts here at at our iCenter with print and digital resources
 
Learning how to navigate all the different sources of information is an important life skill. Students need to be able to use appropriate and high quality resources for their school information needs. This requires more than just being able to "Google". Through the iCenter, students will find a wide variety of resources to use or checkout.
Students need to be able to evaluate resources based on criteria such as:
 
RelevancyIs the information relevant to the question at hand? Am I on the right track?
AppropriatenessIs the information suitable to my age and core values?
DetailHow much information do I need? Is the depth of coverage adequate?
CurrencyWhen was the information published or last updated?
AuthorityWho is the author of the information? What are his or her qualifications?
Bias
Why was this information written? Was it written to inform me, persuade me, entertain me, or sell me something?
