490 1  The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Reports 
       on Digital Media and Learning 
520    Overview: How well do children navigate the ocean of 
       information that is available online? The enormous variety
       of Web-based resources represents both opportunities and 
       challenges for Internet-savvy kids, offering extraordinary
       potential for learning and social connection but little 
       guidance on assessing the reliability of online 
       information. This book reports on the first large-scale 
       survey to examine children's online information-seeking 
       strategies and their beliefs about the credibility of that
       information. This Web-based survey of 2,747 children, ages
       11 to 18 (and their parents), confirms children's heavy 
       reliance on the Internet. They are concerned about the 
       credibility of online information, but 89 percent believe 
       that "some" to "a lot" of it is believable; and, choosing 
       among several options, they rate the Internet as the most 
       believable information source for entertainment, 
       commercial products, and schoolwork (more credible than 
       books for papers or projects). Most have more faith 
       information found on Wikipedia more than they say others 
       should; and they consider an article on the Web site of 
       Encyclopedia Britannica more believable than the identical
       article found on Wikipedia. Other findings show that 
       children are appropriately skeptical of trusting strangers
       they meet online, but not skeptical enough about 
       entertainment and health information found online. Older 
       kids are more rigorous in their assessment of online 
       information than younger ones; younger children are less 
       analytical and more likely to be fooled.
