A Comment:After teaching and observing for 30 years the best educational gains come from skilled positive reinforcements,never from the negative reinforcements of belittling, blaming and sarcasm, yet the negative is still often seen in the classroom when a student makes a mistake while trying to learn.

Social Networking exposes us to people’s stupidity and mediocrity as well as their wisdom. This problem will not go away. Education now is going through a vast change and with our electronic media we have access to unlimited knowledge. The challenge for Educators is to teach students how to tell the difference between the good the bad and the mediocre knowledge.

There are many ways to validate information from the internet, these vary from sophisticated software that checks submitted school work for plagiarism down to simply checking the sources where the information came from. It all starts with the simplest of checks. copy your information you are concerned about and paste it back into a google search. The search results will show how many other people are saying something similar and the results will also indicate if it is also used on university, government, industry or other reputable web sites. Remember much information used on web sites is often copied from other webs so be sure it is being used in at least 3 reputable sites. Lastly do a quick search and find what is said about the topic on independent forums.
