I saw this video on Good Morning America yesterday and was amazed!

 

Watching this I thought of a few questions I would ask students if they watched this in class with me:

  • Is it real? 
  • What evidence do you have to support your opinion? 
  • Is everything posted online real? 
  • Is everything “caught” on video tape real? 
  • Can you believe everything you see/read online? 
  • How can you verify your information?

This video is not real, but was put together for a commercial.  But the rumor went around that this really happened.  Just a thought on how to address the need for critical thinking skills when using online resources.

Any other ideas out there?
