Digital Smarts - WWWDOT

You are here

Are your kids too trusting of what they find online? It might be good to introduce them to the WWWDOT Framework. WWWDOT in an acronym for the factors to consider when evaluating a website as a possible source of information:

  • Who wrote it and what credentials do they have?
  • Why was it written?
  • When was it written or updated?
  • Does it help meet my needs?
  • Organization of site
  • To-do list for the future

For more information on using the framework see the article Evaluation Websites as Information Sources on the Edutopia website.
