EDUCATION Searching for Relevant Information
sure all of us who use the net to gather information have at one time or the other acclimated info that was not reliable or
accurate to the subject that we was researching. And that happens quite often. People who post stuff on the net are basically
authors. That’s assuming they haven’t copied it from another source. And that’s where the problem lies.
Because people are basically the authors of the info that they present many times the info is incorrect.
times the info is presented to the authors through word of mouth and it ends up on the Internet. When we are researching subjects
on the net and gather info including this tainted stuff and many time we assume
its correct. Just because it was found
on the net. We automatically assume it was correct. College students for example get
much of the sources info from the Internet.
Then how do we prevent accepting this info for being correct? What we need to do especially when we are researching
a subject is to gather our info from different sources rather than just taking Internet materials at face valve. Examples
of other sources include newspapers, library books and people. We will be better off by using this checklist and better prepared
in using the Information that we have gathered for our use. In that way the users of the information that my share wither
it to be over the internet , orally or whatever way we wish to do it, at least we will have better confidence in the info
as being more actuated because we have at least done our homework before we do communication..
