In a world where creating a website is as easy as clicking "create site", it is really important to get our students to really look at the resource before they take it as the truth. Therefore, part of any research project should be teaching students how to evaluate a website before they use it. During the MLTI flipped classroom workshop that I'm attending today, I came across a simple Prezi on Knowmia that a Kara Heichelbech. I could see it as being a very useful way of showing students how to look at sites very easily. It is a bit more drawn out, but could be used to get a conversation started with the different questions that it asks. Check it out!
I had a teacher ask me if there was a way to hide or remove students who are no longer in your class. The answer is maybe. It depends on if they are officially dropped from your class and appearing as red in your roster and gradebook. If not, then no, you cannot remove them until they have been unenrolled from the class. If the student is showing up as red in your gradebook though, you can hide them so you don't have to worry about them. Here is a screenshot to help you do it:
