So, here’s one of the things I’ve been up to so far this term …..
Today I had the absolute pleasure and privilege of working with the Year 12 & 13 students at Aurora College in Invercargill. Aurora is a small co-educational Year 7-13 secondary school, which is part of the group of schools working in our project.
Following on from our initial Hui in February I was invited by their lead teacher Kirsten Erasmus to present an introduction to their senior students about information literacy skills needed for successful learning.
I had two one-hour sessions, the first with Year 12 students and the second with Year 13 students. I kicked off by talking about what makes us successful learners and why a positive attitude is vital to push through when things are hard.
We then went on to cover
- the importance of following a research process
- using a research pathfinder to keep on track
- Google searching strategies for successful searching
- moving beyond Google and using databases
