Here's a four minute instructional video from the always clever Richard Byrne.   I could see this as a find blended learning activity.  Have your students create their research notes with Google Slides.  Use this video to show them how to do it. 


Flip that classroom folks! 

Marian Royal Vigil's curator insight, June 4, 11:42 AM

This is not outstanding, but does a pretty good job of explaining how to use Google Slides in the research process.  It would be good for teachers to view.  I don't think it's polished enough to use with students.

Google Docs & Research: How-To?

Google Docs & Research: How-To? | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

When students are doing research, they sometimes struggle with citing their sources or moving beyond a quick search with Google.com. The Google Docs Research Pane helps to facilitate searching for and citing sources. By going to Tools –> Research, the Research Pane pops up on the right hand side! You can search Google, images, scholar, quotes, and dictionary! By dragging and dropping certain content (e.g. images), not only will the material appear, but a footnote (in MLA, Chicago, or APA format).

Student Persistence in Online Courses: Understanding the Key Factors | Faculty Focus

Student Persistence in Online Courses: Understanding the Key Factors | Faculty Focus | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it
Who should be taking online courses? Are online courses equally appropriate for all students? Can any content be taught in an online format or do some kinds of material lend themselves to mastery in an electronic environment?

 

Her review is based on 20 studies published since 1999. She found that researchers used a wide range of definitions for persistence. She opted for this straightforward description: persistence is “the ability to complete an online course despite obstacles or adverse circumstances.” (p. 30) The opposite of persistence is attrition, which she defined as “withdrawal from an online course.” (p. 30) Based on her review, she identified the following factors as being related to student persistence in online courses.

Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners: Google Docs New Integrated Research Tool

Cool Tools for 21st Century Learners: Google Docs New Integrated Research Tool | Jewish Education Around the World | Scoop.it

Google Docs has many useful features for helping students develop writing skills. When I recently opened a Google Document to plan a teacher training on Using Google Docs to Facilitate a Writing Workshop I was pleasantly surprised to find a new and powerful integrated research feature which couldn't be easier to use. Just pull down the Tools menu, click on Research and search for information in the research pane that appears on the right side of the screen. Users never have to leave the page.
