I would have used "Gathering" instead of Google for the letter G. As much as I do not teach students to exclude Google as a search tool, I insist they use other databases (Nettrekker, Discovery Ed, & other encyclopedias) first.

Glenda Morris's insight:

Karen Bonanno says inquiry-based learning is an active learning process, based on identifying relevant questions to research so that the student can develop knowledge about or create solutions to issues and problems. 

Web tools allow students to engage in collaborative and interactive learning. All phases of inquiry learning can be adequately addressed through a wide variety of web-based tools and applications. 

This webinar presents a range of tools that will support inquiry-based learning in the school's curriculum program.

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Information Literacy & Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Using Wikipedia in information literacy instruction

As an information literacy instructor at Auburn University, it has been a perpetual struggle to teach students how to successfully search for library resources when they come to their one-time library sessions with only a broad paper topic and no idea how to narrow it down. A student recently told me regarding an English composition due in a few days, “The topic is so broad, I can’t pick an argument. I don’t even know where to start.” I began encouraging students to use a resource that they feel comfortable with as a starting point—Wikipedia.

It is better to be positive about something that students use rather than negative. As long as they know the pitfalls it is a good place to start. Just not the place to stay! 

Karen Draper's curator insight, January 29, 10:49 AM

This is what I teach my students-- get ideas from Wikipedia, use it as a jumping point. Make sure all info is backed up by primary & secondary sources.

Monica Crane-Gatto's curator insight, January 31, 11:39 PM

Using Wikipedia as a starting point can assist in narrowing a search that will lead into vetted databases research.
