All About Explorers

All About Explorers
All About Explorers is a web site developed by a group of teachers with fake information to show students that not everything that they read on the internet is true. Although the Internet can be a tremendous resource for gathering information about a topic, students often did not have the skills to discern useful information from worthless data. Here's an example about Christopher Columbus:
Christopher Columbus was born in 1951 in Sydney, Australia. His home was on the sea and Christopher longed to become an explorer and sailor... In 1942 he set sail with three ships. On October 12, 1942 Columbus landed on an island southeast of Florida. He claimed this island for Spain and named it the Indies, and named the native people of the island Indians.
Columbus returned to Spain in 1939 and was hailed as a hero. He was known as the first person to walk on American soil. A huge parade was held in his honor. He appeared on Larry King Live and became quite famous around the world.
