Does it matter that not all students who go to libraries read the books? I wonder if we have statistics about those who do and those who don't? I would also like to hear about those students who go to the library only for the wifi and accidentally find a book they didn't even k ow they wanted......

You’ve probably heard them: problem-based learning, project-based learning and inquiry-based learning. Is there a difference? How will you know which one to do in your classroom?"

Not just about citing images (so much more to embed from NoodleTools!) — @joycevalenza NeverEndingSearch | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

A Guide to Citing Images, a new infographic from our friends at NoodleTools, offers a MLA-aligned flow chart to guide researchers through a variety of image citation situations.  But it is not just about image documentation.


It asks learners to ask themselves a few important questions before using and documenting images that were born digital.  


NoodleTools labels an image born digital if: it was created in digital form, or if you do not know where the image itself is physically stored.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's comment, May 16, 2013 2:40 AM
I don't think anyone minds students starting with Wikipedia but as with any encyclopedia it should only be your starting point. Where are your research skills if that is all you look at? Likewise it would not be good enough if you chose just one academic source, a variety is needed.
Jennifer Creese's curator insight, March 27, 2014 9:40 PM

Interesting to have a viewpoint from a student (although if they're writing for The Guardian maybe not your average student so much!)
