Four Helpful Web Search Strategy Tutorials | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

"Vaughn Memorial Library at Acadia University hosts four free animated tutorials designed to teach lessons on web research strategies. The four tutorials are Credible Sources Count, Research It Right, Searching With Success, and You Quote It, You Note It."

Nancy Jones's insight:

some great little interactive videos to go over the concepts of tsearching safely on the internet.

This is a helpful share from Richard Byrne's site Free Tech 4 Teachers.  I encourage all educators to add this resource site to aid in the development/strenthening of student searching skills.

just can't have too many tools in our 1:1 toolbox. These are aimed at intermediate and middle grades. Thanks Beth for another helpful Scoop!

21st Century Information Fluency: Teacher's Guide: Ethical Use GameKit | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

This guide provides instructions and ideas for using the Action Zone activities that are bundled in this Ethical Use Kit. The Sorting Hat Challenge requires searchers to dig for information within a site to find its author. Four new MicroModule Companions test skills in finding information about Copyright, Citation and Plagiarism (2 sets). In addition to serving as tutorial resources, each one may be used to assess the extent to which students are able to demonstrate skills in secondary searching and citing resources properly.

Always good stuff from the work of Dennis O'Connor and Carl Heine. Thanks for making our jobs a little easier while helping make our students a little wiser.

This is vintage work from Dr. Carl Heine and me.  I'm always pleased to share this!  You'll find lots of goodies here!
