The use of the Web has become an essential part of teaching and learning in Australian schools. Nevertheless, many students lack knowledge of how to properly evaluate and cite Web-sourced information. This paper presents criteria, by which students can judge the reliability of Web resources, and guidelines on the citation of Web information. These strategies have been implemented successfully by the authors in their classes.
