Description

Internet Safety with Professor Garfield - Fact or Opinion


Nermal is upset when he receives an “F” on his report about goats. Garfield looks at the report and finds that Nermal has included facts but also opinions. Nermal reveals that he found the information on a website and wonders how he is supposed to know what’s true and what isn’t. Enter Dr. Nova and Professor G. Dr. Nova explains that there’s a great deal of good information on the Internet but that there’s also a great deal of mis- information. Some online information can even be described as hateful. She helps Nermal learn the difference between facts and opinions (with a little assistance from the Fact-Bot) and stresses that it’s important to read with a questioning mind.


Included with the story, an interactive "Try" and "Apply" section are included to help users gain insight to the problem. Try to recognize the difference between a fact or an opinion and Apply your knowledge to differentiate between the two online.


Through reading and interacting with the Try and Apply sections of this comic, users will:
• learn the difference between a fact and an opinion, particularly with regard to the Internet
• understand that some websites contain facts, some contain opinions, and some contain both
• learn that a fact can be verified

OMG - most awesome!

Can't believe this is a FREE app! (Thanks, by the way!) I actually think middle schoolers could also use this. It also talks about the dangers of believing everything you read on the internet - good lesson for any age. Nice intro lesson, followed up with fun activities. I don't often give 5 stars, but I did for this one.

Exceeded my expectations

This free app uses a cartoon character to teach a language arts concepts to middle elementary aged students. It is funny for the kids, and keeps their attention, as well as teaching the concept clearly. It is not a video, and you have to read the text. But for free I am willing to do that!

Great

Very educational and beautiful art. I like it
