how can you be sure that it is reliable and credible?
Weegy: To make sure you have found a reliable source of information, ask yourself these questions: 1. [ Who is responsible for the Web site? Is the Web page associated with a reliable organization, such as a university or a government agency? What interest does the organization responsible have in the information presented. For example, will the organization profit from the information presented? 2. Who wrote the information? If the author is not listed or has no credentials, it may not be a credible source. Pay attention to the author’s credentials or experience. Is the source really an authority on this particular matter or someone with an impressive title that has no connection to the subject matter? 3. When was the information written? Is it current? Is it still relevant? 4. Are there other sources that agree with statements made on the site, or do other sources contradict this source? In that case you may need to search further. It’s always a good idea to gather more than one source. 5. Are any sources cited? If the author does not document anything, then the information may simply be someone’s opinion. If statistics used come from a survey, how was the data gathered? Who conducted the survey or poll? Was the sample representative of the population? How many were surveyed? What percent of the population? When choosing between the library and the Internet keep in mind that up to 90 percent of the contents of college library collections are not on the Internet. Because of copyright laws it is too expensive to put all scholarly work on the Internet. This means that the most comprehensive source of information is still the library. ............ ] (More)

what does digital divide exactly means, and how do I think this divide could be bridged?
Weegy: : The Digital Divide refers to any inequalities between groups, broadly construed, in terms of access to, use of, [ [ or knowledge of information and communication technologies.The divide inside countries (such as the digital divide in the United States) can refer to inequalities between individuals, households, businesses, and geographic areas at different socioeconomic and other demographic levels, while the Global digital divide designates countries as the units of analysis and examines the divide between developing and developed countries on an international scale. Research suggests a multitude of explanations for the digital divide including, but not limited to: education, income, age, skills, awareness, race, ethnic origin, location, and gender (which is contested as being a confounding variable); political and cultural access; and psychological attitudes to Internet access and usage.Income levels and educational attainment are identified as having the largest explanatory power to explain ICT access and usage, with age being a third important variable, which means that prototypical "victims" to the digital divide can be foremost characterized as poorer, less educated, and older. ] (More)
