Internet Literacy The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate your ability to find links to appropriate and credible health websites, select an article or study, and critique or assess that article. Our library has ongoing workshops in internet literacy to assist you. The paper should be one page, single spaced. Grammar and spelling are important. 1) Is this a credible and appropriate website? Where does the information come from? 2) Choose an article or study. In a few sentences, briefly describe, in your own words, what your article is about. Do not do a summary. Is the source credible? 3) Comment on the “subjects” – randomly chosen?, number?, control group? 4) Who is conducting the study? 5) What are they looking for? 6) Who is funding (paying for) the study? 7) Comment on outcomes (results), and whether they are significant and/or valid. What implications do they have for the future? 8) Analyze the content of the article. 9) Conclude with your opinion of the value of the study. 10) Attach a copy of the article (if very long, the abstract will be sufficient). Sample websites: HealthSquare, HealthLink/Medical College of Wisconsin, fda.gov, Proquest (log in – htfmpnkxtf, password – welcome), Medscape, NIH (National Institutes of Health), CDC. Our book lists several good website sources.
