Research Article: “Why Some Students Continue to Value Individual, Face-to-Face Research Consultations in a Technology-Rich World” | LJ INFOdocket | School Libraries and more | Scoop.it

For decades, academic librarians have provided individual research consultations for students. There is little information, however, about why students schedule consultations, the kinds of assistance students feel are provided by librarians during consultations, and what students find valuable about face-to-face consultations, even with the availability of online research help. This exploratory, qualitative study of individual research consultations at the University of Vermont gathered students’ views on these questions. The findings will help librarians better understand how individual consultations serve students and what role consultations should play in the mix of reference services offered.

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.

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.

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.

At first, I figured that the results of this study would be pretty obvious. First world countries with large populations and higher birth rates would be at the top of the list.

What do you think? Do you believe the results are obvious? If so, you may be surprised. Learn about the "digital natives" in the following areas:

* Who they are

* The top ten countries by percentage

* The young and connected

* Future trends

This infographic could be used to begin a discussion with students by asking what they think? What is the age range for a digital native? Which countries have the most digital natives? What does it mean to be young and connected? What do they think the future holds?
