What is CORA? | Community of Online Research Assignments

What is CORA? | Community of Online Research Assignments | Librarians Teaching Information Literacy | Scoop.it

CORA stands for Community of Online Research Assignments. It is an open access resource for faculty and librarians. It is intended to be a collaborative space for adapting and experimenting with research assignments and sharing the success or lessons learned so that others may benefit. The database will contain multiple, reliable and reproducible research assignments that will not live as isolated entities, but are enhanced by user feedback in order to build a rich corpus of best practices.

Do Your Students Know How To Search? - Edudemic

Do Your Students Know How To Search? - Edudemic | Librarians Teaching Information Literacy | Scoop.it
There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not.

Via Beth Dichter
Christine Bushong's insight:

These are information literacy skills: how to find, access and use information.

Pamela Perry King's curator insight, October 21, 2013 12:09 PM

The Big Six taught me a lot on how we assume kids can skim and scan.  We need to take more time to show them how to search.

johanna krijnsen's curator insight, December 4, 2013 2:07 PM

do your students know how to search, find and curate information?

Cindy Gerken Butler's curator insight, November 11, 2014 2:34 PM

We are a 1:1 school and we have several students who could learn a lot in regards to searching for content on the internet.

Citelighter (The Pinterest For Research) Launches Massive Global Learning Database - Edudemic

Citelighter (The Pinterest For Research) Launches Massive Global Learning Database - Edudemic | Librarians Teaching Information Literacy | Scoop.it

- Like Pinterest, you download their toolbar which allows you to quickly capture content that you’re looking at online.

- Then, you can add comments while they’re still fresh in your head (perhaps to remind you why you thought it was useful in case you forget later on?) and then the toolbar creates the corresponding bibliographic citation for you.

- Once you’re done, you export your facts, citations, and notes to a word document to use later when writing a paper or creating a reference document. As you go, you can check out your list of references and notes, organize them as you wish, and view recommended Pro Articles. As you go about your business, collecting references on the education policies of the US presidential candidates or the origins of Morse Code, Citelighter aggregates them for each specific topic on Knowledge Cards.

Digital Public Library of America on edshelf

Digital Public Library of America on edshelf | Librarians Teaching Information Literacy | Scoop.it

The Digital Public Library of America brings together the riches of America’s libraries, archives, and museums, and makes them freely available to the world. It strives to contain the full breadth of human expression, from the written word, to works of art and culture, to records of America’s heritage, to the efforts and data of science. The DPLA aims to expand this crucial realm of openly available materials, and make those riches more easily discovered and more widely usable and used, through its three main elements:

1. A portal that delivers students, teachers, scholars, and the public to incredible resources, wherever they may be in America. Far more than a search engine, the portal provides innovative ways to search and scan through the united collection of millions of items, including by timeline, map, format, and topic.

2. A platform that enables new and transformative uses of our digitized cultural heritage. With an application programming interface (API) and maximally open data, the DPLA can be used by software developers, researchers, and others to create novel environments for learning, tools for discovery, and engaging apps.

3. An advocate for a strong public option in the twenty-first century. For most of American history, the ability to access materials for free through public libraries has been a central part of our culture, producing generations of avid readers and a knowledgeable, engaged citizenry. The DPLA will work, along with like-minded organizations and individuals, to ensure that this critical, open intellectual landscape remains vibrant and broad in the face of increasingly restrictive digital options. The DPLA will seek to multiply openly accessible materials to strengthen the public option that libraries represent in their communities.

CCPS Research Process

This website, developed by media specialists in Collier County, Florida, is an elegant solution to presenting the research process to students. The six step model for secondary students contains a rich set of links to resources for every step of the model. You could use this website for whole group instruction and then students could access it on their own as they work their way through a research assignment. A link to primary source lesson plans at the Library of Congress makes an instant resource to build research experiences for your students.

Research a topic with an interactive map

Customize it with facts, links, and videos

Share it to show what you’ve learned

Christine Bushong's insight:

This is a different way for students to do research with search results that include facts, visuals, a glossary, website links, media, and even quizzes.  Collect what you find in your Journal and keep track of where you've been in History.  Much more student-centered than a simple Google search, this is worth exploring.  Teacher accounts $35/yr allow viewing student work.
