Evaluating Educational Websites

by Daniel Sequin Year Published: 1999

Five important questions to consider when choosing educational websites for children:

1.  Where did the website come from?  Is there information about the organization and/or the site's author?

2.  Is the site well designed?  Is it easy to read and navigate?  Are there ads overshadowing the content?

3.  Is the content of the site appropriate and educational?

4.  Does the site load quickly and have clear instructions?

5.  Is the website current?  Is it updated regularly?
