eSchoolNews has a fantastic letter from the editor regarding the federal government’s recent evaluation of learning software for schools.
The editor lambasts reporters’ overblown headlines, inappropriate and
overbroad conclusions, and failure to adequately criticize and
critically reflect upon the report and its accompanying publicity
There was a recent dust-up at Dangerously Irrelevant as well regarding information sources for Did You Know?.
As we all do our own original writing or write about others’ work,
these are important reminders that we need to be careful, thoughtful,
and appropriately critical before we put information out into the
easily-searchable, publicly-findable blogosphere.
