Yesterday I went into a post 16 (Year 12) Science lesson to discuss how they approach their research.
Where do they start when given a piece of research?
Not surprisingly the top two answers were…
Google and Wikipedia.
So we discussed some of the pitfalls of each of these options, pointed out ways to use these safely; to get reliable and relevant information from them and a few hints and tips, before going onto show them some alternatives.
These alternatives can be found via the Oliver Homepageand not only would these provide a more reliable place to start a research project, would, with practice save you valuable time.
