NoodleTools research guides on citing and evaluating sources
Christine Bushong's insight:

"With a mix of vibrant images, visual annotation and text, the modules are designed by educators to engage students in information literacy and the research process. What constitutes credible information? How does source type contribute to relevance, authority and point of view? How do I evaluate and cite born-digital images and online sources?

Over twenty full modules are available, addressing source and website evaluation, digital literacy skills, plagiarism prevention and ethical writing. There are three progressive levels to choose from (Starter, Junior and Advanced) for elementary through university students." -- Reviewed by Internet @ Schools http://www.internetatschools.com/Articles/News/Breaking-News/NoodleTools-Provides-Its-Show-Me-Information-Literacy-Modules-Free-86732.aspx

Christine Bushong's curator insight, April 12, 2013 8:34 AM

Questioning is at the root of research, so use these tips to encourage questioning as part of the research process.  As a media specialist, I begin teaching research by having students compose their BIG Question, then have them break it down into all the Little Questions that must be answered in order to answer the BIG question.  From there, they pluck out some search terms and add more terms that are from the current knowledge they may already have about the topic or questions.  These search terms become the root of queries entered into search engines and database searches.  It's a natural progression.

Even if we know in the abstract that students can be more successful learners if they know how to ask questions, the skill is far too rarely deliberately taught in school.  We can change that by teaching students to produce their own questions, improve their questions and strategize on how to use them..

Christine Bushong's insight:

A good resource for teachers and media specialists teaching information literacy.  All research begins with an essential question.
