Using Google to Research

When you research on the internet, you have to evaluate each website and decide whether or not it looks like a good source - if it's valid. If the website end in a .gov (government) or a .edu (education), those are generally good websites for information. But if your website ends in .com or .org, you will have to look for a few things to help you decide if it's good information.

1. Who wrote it?

  • Is there an About Us section?
  • Is there a person or organization that made this website?
  • If you can't find out who wrote it, you probably shouldn't use it.

2. Why should you trust them?

  • Are they an expert?
  • What makes them an expert? (Degree, experience, other?)

3. Do you think it looks like a good source?

  • Are they part of an official organization that can prove it exists?
  • Can you contact them?
  • Use your best judgement to decide for yourself if it looks like good information.

Please note that CCSD does not control nor can it guarantee the accuracy, relevance, timeliness, completeness, or appropriateness of any content contained on web sites and/or pages outside of the official CCSD portal. The information or opinions contained on these web sites and/or pages do not necessarily represent the views of the CCSD.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
