I love libraries, but I get why they aren't for everyone. The selection varies by area, and other people have already checked out the best books. Maybe you've even lost all interest in physical forms of media. CDs, DVDs, and magazines may not sound all that exciting in a world where you can get anything…

This is definitely remaining current. Very inspiring! 

Joyce Valenza's curator insight, June 22, 2014 9:11 AM

"Case in point: Monticello High School in Charlottesville, Virginia. When librarian Joan Ackroyd arrived there four years ago, she found an environment very different from the “engaging, creative, fun” elementary and middle school libraries to which she was accustomed. “Its library was none of those things,” she recalls. “It was a traditional, quiet research space.”

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers ~ Global Digital Citizen Foundation

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers ~ Global Digital Citizen Foundation | K-12 Libraries and Technology | Scoop.it

"Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

 

"While I understand there’s a LOT more to research than just Googling, it’s important to note that this is where nearly all students start their research. Therefore, it’s a critical skill if they’re going to start down the right paths.

 

"Below are 15 lesson plans courtesy of Google designed to make students better online researchers. They’re organized by difficulty and meant to help students (and everyone) become better online searchers."

Excellent lessons. Must be used.

Deborah Fillman's curator insight, December 15, 2014 8:47 PM

This is a pet peeve of mine--schools are still not teaching kids how to do this properly, with disastrous results. Whether you homeschool or send a child to school, these lessons will help them use the Internet more effectively (and responsibly) for research projects. 

Tanyam's curator insight, February 23, 5:10 PM

I have not read all of this, but I have seen some ideas in here we could use in both our face to face and online teaching. Interesting to read the criteria Google use to evaluate resources
