PERELMAN, Flora et al. Construction of Internet sources selection criteria in didactic situations: a study with students of primary school. Interam. j. psychol. [online]. 2009, vol.43, n.3, pp. 496-506. ISSN 0034-9690.

This work analyzes: (a) criteria used by 5th grade elementary school pupils when they proposed to read the results page of a search engine to select the sources they will use to investigate a History subject and (b) the conditions and didactic interactions generated to promote progress in constructing these criteria. From a situated constructivist perspective, it is considered that selection criteria depend on the search purpose and on the principles related to each discipline, and that the didactic conditions are constitutive of the students knowledge processes. The methodological design consisted of a qualitative study of cases in which two data collection instruments are used: classroom observations in the computer lab and post-clinical-critical interviews. The results show that some students face with the problem to differentiate between the pertinence and confiability criteria and the didactic interaction promote this distinction when generating reflection about the most specificity of the confiability criteria on historical texts. The interchange promotes the overcoming of hypotheses such as the equation truth - confiability in Social Sciences.
