“Why Students Can’t Google Their Way to the Truth”

This article spoke about the problems with finding reliable information online and how sometimes students see unreliable sources as good sources. The article discussed research that was done at Stanford that showed “middle school students were unable to tell the difference between an advertisement and a news story.” I think that overall this article showed the importance of making sure that the websites being used are reliable through both looking into the website itself but also checking that the facts given on the site are similar or the same as information in other sources.
