Information Literacy – Do Students Know What They Are Looking For?

Self-Paced Learning

Description

Often when K-12 students come to AskMN, Minnesota’s statewide digital reference service, they are looking for help on a particular assignment. Sometimes students will just copy and paste the original assignment from their teacher into the text field of the chat session. K-12 students are beginner researchers and, as such, need guidance on building search strategies and locating authoritative resources. AskMN Librarians work with students to identify the key concepts from assignments and show students how to create search strategies from them. In this 45 minute webinar we will discuss commonly used techniques from AskMN librarians to help students with the initial stages of research.
