Evaluating Websites: Are you Joe Cool or Joe Fool?

Think you know about the Web? Here's your chance to prove it! Take a CyberTour with Josie and Joseph Cool, as they visit their twelve favorite websites, and decide whether or not they're making smart choices. It's easy to do. Every time one of the Jo's has to make a decision about a website, write down:
  • What kind of website is this?
  • What decision does Jo have to make?
  • What should Jo be looking out for?
  • Does Jo make the right decision?
  • Why or why not?
How do your answers compare to the Jo's? Any surprises?
After you're done, compare your answers with those of your friends.
Once you've taken the CyberTour, see how much you've learned by completing the Jo Cool/Jo Fool CyberQuiz. There are twenty questions about the Net and how kids use it—are you up for the challenge?
