I have been looking at digital tools to help students locate information and present information. This got me thinking about the information overload that I see many of my students experience.

I remember in high school and in college (just on the cusp of the Internet generation), we had to have several sources for a paper. I…

Investigative Searching 20/10

Dennis O'Connor and I have created a new online course in information forensics for students, teachers and librarians. It's called Investigative Searching 20/10, playing off the metaphor of 'better-than-average' vision. When it comes to locating and evaluating information from the Internet, students (on average without training) score in the 40% range. That means that more often than not, they cannot locate and determine the credibility of the author,… Continue

(WSI) Website Investigation: An Introduction to Information Forensics.

Carl and I concluded our first run of (WSI) Website Investigation: An Introduction to Information Forensics. This is a fully facilitated Moodle based online class. We had a lot of fun and the participants were great. We also radically underestimated the amount of time the course would take. We figured 5 hours in one week. When we polled the class everyone reported taking far more time with each case study.

It doesn't surprise… Continue
