Common Core: Rethink Research and Engage Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Research isn’t a solitary task confined to a library. Research happens every time we
grab our cell phones to answer a question or search for something. Despite being hyper connected to information, students need to learn how to find, evaluate and use that information in a variety of contexts. Explore how Instagram scavenger hunts, infographics
and expert group investigations can be used to get students researching to address the Common Core Standards.

Participants will:

Discuss the changing role of research in our lives.
Crowdsource ideas for using Instagram to teach informal research.
Explore how infographics combine research and digital media.
Brainstorm benefits of allowing students to become the “experts” and teach each other.
