I recently was doing a training on How to Teach Today’s Learners. I remembered that Vygotsky had a lot of good ideas that we have built upon since his time. When I suggested to the group to use scaffolding they looked at me a little funny. So, I stepped back and created this infographic in an attempt to lay a foundation for many of our present day teaching techniques.

How do You Choose Good Online Sources?

Students often ask how to determine which websites and articles are good sources to cite. My answer is always, “Well, what do you think?” Students need to be able to think on their own. So, if your student offers some questionable sources, ask, “Why did you choose that one?” Try to get the student to think about the who, what, why, and when of the article and website. Let the student use critical thinking to come to a valid conclusion. They might just have a good reason for using the source.

How to chose a good online source…. some questions to ask yourself.
