I wish someone would create one of these graphics with the language of a fourth grade student. It would be so helpful.

Building Good Search Skills: What Students Need to Know | MindShift | Research and Evaluation | Scoop.it

The Internet has made researching subjects deceptively effortless for students — or so it may seem to them at first. Truth is, students who haven’t been taught the skills to conduct good research will invariably come up short.

These guidelines are particularly helpful in evaluating "science" sources. So much that isa presented as "science" is biased and may be more appropriately categorized as "political science".

Carol Thomson's curator insight, July 30, 2013 5:12 AM

Clear and easy to understand.

In the short guide below I provide updated directions for the basics of Google Book search."

Using Images as Research Prompts to Teach Google Search Strategies

Using Images as Research Prompts to Teach Google Search Strategies | Research and Evaluation | Scoop.it

"Over the last month I've shown the picture that you see to the left during a number of presentations and workshops. I've used the picture to model using pictures to spark students' minds at the beginning of lessons on search strategies. This is a strategy that I've developed by borrowing ideas from Daniel Russell's Search ReSearch activities and Dan Meyer's strategy of using videos and pictures to prompt students to ask math questions."

Richard Byrne shares how he uses images to help students (and teachers) learn search strategies. He suggests using Creative Common-licensed images from Flickr or Fotopedia as many are tagged with locations. He also shares some of the questions that often come up with this picture.

Using images to teach search strategies may help those students whom are more visual learners.

Kimberly House's curator insight, July 28, 2013 9:39 AM

Great idea for getting curiousity going and engaging students in what can be a dry topic: search strategies! 

Nevermore Sithole's curator insight, August 8, 2013 8:26 AM

A good tool for teaching information search strategies.

Why “Googling It” Is Not Enough

Why “Googling It” Is Not Enough | Research and Evaluation | Scoop.it

Has the Internet changed the way students conduct research? Yes, and not always for the better, reports to a study released last week by the Pew Research Center, “How Teens Do Research in the Digital World.” According to a survey of more than 2,000 middle and high school teachers, “research” for today’s students means “Googling,” and as a result, doing research “has shifted from a relatively slow process of intellectual curiosity and discovery to a fast-paced, short-term exercise aimed at locating just enough information to complete an assignment.”
