    R: You, um, what if I told you that this site was not at all reliable and that the information was not true.
    S: I would say that you were wrong and that maybe you used a different a website and it’s just called the same thing because the stuff I found out was everything I needed to find out and some other stuff that I didn’t need to know so I think it’s very reliable and I disagree with you.

    Debrief at the end of the lesson.
    Initially: locating and critically evaluating
    Later: Synthesis and communicating.

    A literacy issue
    A technology issue
    Technology standards become integrated within subject area standards

    Every classroom teacher is responsible
    Subject area assessments and online information skills are assessed together.
    Technology standards are separated from subject area standards
    Online learning is separated from subject areas
    Specialists are responsible
    Online information and communication skills are assessed separately from subject area knowledge.

    The Internet requires new, more complex forms of higher level thinking, reading comprehension, and communication skills.
    We need to expand our conception of reading.
    We should be thinking of how best to prepare students to read, think, problem solve, and communicate with others using the Internet.
