This is a great infographic for showing the thought process of finding information.

Terry Yelmene's curator insight, August 16, 2015 11:50 AM

A pretty well-reasoned, fundamental thought process for most knowledge work research.  This serves as an even better backward (there-to-here) model to guide the core research workflow process automation  a knowledge worker may want to devise, install.  Think work product-informed -> DevonThink structures -> DevonAgent w/'Active Filtered' automated searches.  The most important drivers here are - 'ethical' - (more than just multiple sources, a stage needs to be added at the work product stage to provide authenticity) and - 'bias' -  (a post automated search,  subsequent manual search for corroborating items selection to provide authority).

Kristina Holzweiss's curator insight, April 28, 2013 10:12 PM

The Historical Scene Investigation Project (HSI) was designed for social studies teachers who need a strong pedagogical mechanism for bringing primary sources into their classroom. With the advent and accessibility of the internet, many libraries, universities and government agencies are housing their historical documents online. Simultaneously, there has been a push in K-12 history education to give students experiences that more closely resemble the work of a real historian.

Amina Oyegoke's curator insight, March 9, 2:54 AM
As soon as I read the title of this article I immediately though of when I had to read Chapter 1 of my Computer Literacy textbook. Being a part of the "tech savvy" generation I thought I knew mostly everything about digital and computer literacy, and I thought that class was going to be a piece of cake. Turns out, there's way more to computers and anything else digital that I had no clue about. So much stuff that the main part of the class is reading, reading, reading. You would think a computer class would be more hands on, but since technology is evolving so fast, the professor can only go over so much in the time that he has. In this article it starts off right away informing its readers the difference between digital skills and digital literacy. The author, Sally Pewhairangi, also gave examples about the difference between the skills and literacy of research. From those findings, I found the author to be credible because she is an Auckland-based librarian who specializes in Library Intelligence.
