QUALITY OVER QUANTITY: From Harvard University's Berkman Center for Internet and Society comes a lengthy report on how kids assess and interact with online information. Few of the findings in "Youth and Digital Media: From Credibility to Information Quality" will shock anyone: search-savvy is related to information quality, and kids use cues and heuristics to evaluate quality. But it's a thoroughly researched, interdisciplinary study drawing from library science, sociology, psychology, education, law and other fields. Academia types can check out the report in full here; others may be sated with the summaries and infographic.
