Tina Jameson's curator insight, April 30, 7:22 PM

I'm not going to encourage anyone not to give attribution or credit for the images - however always useful to have good sources of free to use images.  Important that students learn that the pictures they find and want to include in presentations have to be sourced and cited appropriately.

Music always enhances.   Never put too much information on a slide.  That's what talking is for, and I like to keep them up only 10-15 seconds so you keep people's interest.

IRC Home Page - Mount St Benedict College IRC - LibGuides at Mount St Benedict College | Future Focus Learning in Australian School Libraries | Scoop.it
Rebecca Shiels's insight:

LibGuides are a new IRC resource in 2015, it is a helpful online aid that students can use to support their research especially for assessments. They offer the ability for the IRC Staff to integrate a diverse range of information sources and instructional support materials in an organised manner that students are finding easy to navigate. 

Libguides are a great place for students to start their assessments providing them with a ‘springboard’ for their academic research. The guides contain listings of recommended resources for finding information such as books, eBooks, databases, or recommended websites and can be embedded with relevant documents, images, widgets and media files. LibGuides can be created for a specific subject, subtopic or even specific class assignments. LibGuides provide an effective and attractive support for learning which is interactive, engaging, Web 2.0 friendly and available 24/7
