TECHNICAL SEMINAR REPORT

INTRODUCTION
 There is a tremendous amount of information available on
the World Wide Web.
 Wether a student, teacher, researcher, businessperson,
or interested individual searches the World Wide Web, the
sheer volume of information can be overwhelming .
 As more people gain access to information on the Web
and more content is continuously added, it is important to
know how to evaluate Web sites to determine if the
information is reliable .
 Most Web content is posted without any form of review
for accuracy or reliability, so it is up to us to make sure that
the information we find is credible.

WHY CRITICALLY THINKING


NEEDED
 Evaluating a site means applying individual judgment.
 Good information on bad sites, and bad information on good
sites.
 Information on the Web should be viewed as no more or
less than information from other sources.
 Authorship on the Web does not mean “authority.”
 Evaluation of web sites is a means, not an end.

CONCLUSION
Wrong information is more harmful than correct
information. If we make a decision based on wrong or
unreliable information, we do not have power--we have
defeat. So evaluation of the Word Wide Web is a must for
all students, researchers and surfers, who use internet
regularly.
