    Your job will be to investigate e-mails or scenarios online that have been circulated or seen by thousands of people. After doing research, you will determine if those sites or e-mails are truthful or if they are a hoax. Once you have completed this webquest, you will be more critical of information on the Internet and your research skills will be more advanced.

Internet Search Challenge: More information, a smaller fraction - 0 views

  • The paradoxical thing about information and searching is that the more of it there is, the less of it we will see. The results we retrieve will be a smaller and smaller sample of what's actually available. And I don't see how this trend can be reversed.
  • When I ask workshop participants if they've ever gone to the end of the list retrieved, I've never encountered anyone who has. Most searchers stop after the first page; the number who look at two pages is much smaller. For the 8 people in 100 who go beyond the third page, they have access to 0.1% of the information theoretically available. For the majority who never look beyond page one, that number falls to 0.025%.
