Work Flow Student Research Model (802)

  2. 2. COMPARE/CONTRAST INFORMATION BEHAVIOR MODELS <ul><li>  Wilson’s 1996 Model: Problem-Solution model </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Information user is the focus of information needs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Founded on in depth research </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Involves other disciplines into model </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>i.e. decision making, psychology, consumer research </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Illustrated through a set of activities that are cyclical </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. COMPARE/CONTRAST INFORMATION BEHAVIOR MODELS <ul><li>Dervin’s Sense-Making Theory </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Helps to understand an existence that is both disorganized and organized </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Factors of Theory/Model: situation in time/space, gap, outcome, bridge </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. COMPARE/CONTRAST INFORMATION BEHAVIOR MODELS <ul><li>Elis’s Model </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Illustrates 8 cyclical steps for information seeking </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Based on extensive research and testing </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. COMPARE/CONTRAST INFORMATION TRANSFER MODELS <ul><li>Similarities Amongst the Models </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Define a problem and solution with stages in between that are user focused </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Information seeking models that are based on reflection and feedback </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cyclical processes that retract/move forward based on needs of the user </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Differences Between the Models </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Each use different terminology to discuss the varying number of stages present </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wilson & Elis’ models are more complex & based on research in contrast to Dervin’s model </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wilson & Elis’ models have withstood time & multiple transformations </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. WHY WE CHOSE TO FOCUS ON SENSE-MAKING <ul><li>Simplistic in nature </li></ul><ul><li>User friendly </li></ul><ul><li>Good fit for students between the ages of 12 & 15 </li></ul>
  7. 8. COMPARE/CONTRAST RESEARCH MODELS <ul><li>Big 6 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>6 stage problem solving strategy for research </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>About Big 6 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Breaking down the assignment </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>1998 Dialogue Model </li></ul><ul><ul><li>8 stage model that uses Dialogue as an acronym for each stage of the model </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>About Dialogue Model </li></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 9. COMPARE/CONTRAST RESEARCH MODELS <ul><li>Similarities </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Similar methods for conducting research </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>i.e. identifying a problem and use several steps to take user to solution </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Acquire resources, review information by relevance/importance, organize information for presentation, self reflection </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Easy to use templates to guide users through research process </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Differences </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Big 6 has 6 steps vs. Dialogue has 8 steps </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Steps are titled & defined differently </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dialogue incorporates cooperative & collaborative learning strategies, Big 6 does not </li></ul></ul>
  9. 10. Info Transfer Model Steps in Workflow Research Model Work Product Topic (Situation / Gap) Title Look for Question (Sense Making / Bridge / Outcome) Note taking & Organizing/Outlining/Etc. Ask Question( Situation - Gap) Research Question Look for Answer (Sense Making / Bridge / Outcome) Note taking & Organizing/Outlining/Etc. Answer Question (Situation - Gap) Thesis Look for Proof (Sense Making / Bridge / Outcome) Note taking & Organizing/Outlining/Etc. Write Detailed Answer w/ Proof (Final Outcome) Final Product Draft & Begin Proofreading & Evaluations Evaluation Evaluate Final Product and Process
  10. 13. WORKFLOW RESEARCH MODEL – STEPS <ul><li>Choosing the Topic .  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>given a topic by the teacher </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>given the option of choosing a topic based on interest </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>“ Reasons for the Fall of Rome” </li></ul></ul></ul>
  11. 14. WORKFLOW RESEARCH MODEL – STEPS <ul><li>L ook for a Question. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A research question is “a clear, focused, concise, complex and arguable question around which you center your research”(“How to Write,” n.d.). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>gather general information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>while processing this information - be on the look out for </li></ul></ul>
  12. 15. WORKFLOW RESEARCH MODEL – STEPS <ul><li>Ask a Question . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>not be too narrow or too broad </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>must be arguable </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>student should find it interesting. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>“ Did the decay of the Roman Army lead to the fall of Rome? “ </li></ul></ul></ul>
  13. 17. WORKFLOW RESEARCH MODEL – STEPS <ul><li>Look for an Answer </li></ul><ul><ul><li>begin looking for more specific information using their question as a guide </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>go over notes already taken </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>conduct more in-depth research </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>bulk of the research done here </li></ul></ul>
  14. 18. WORKFLOW RESEARCH MODEL – STEPS <ul><li>Answer their Research Question . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Should not contain vague words </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>give your answer the &quot;So what?&quot; test. (Is My Thesis, 2008, para. 1) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Becomes tentative thesis statement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>“ Even though bullion hoarding and deficit stifled the growth of wealth in the west, the decay of the Roman army lead to the fall of Rome because leaders became incompetent and rewards were unfairly distributed.” </li></ul></ul></ul>
  15. 19. WORKFLOW RESEARCH MODEL – STEPS <ul><li>Looking for Proof </li></ul><ul><ul><li>specific examples to back up their answer/thesis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>fill in any holes by conducting more research </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>proof should be organized and cited for future use </li></ul></ul>
  16. 20. WORKFLOW RESEARCH MODEL – STEPS <ul><li>Writing a detailed Answer which includes Proof. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>create a draft: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>give a well thought out answer (Final Thesis Statement) to research question </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>provide proof with specific examples </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>draft should be evaluated by themselves, peers, teachers, parents, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Using the feedback provided - make changes and finalize product. </li></ul></ul>
  17. 22. WORKFLOW RESEARCH MODEL <ul><li>Pros of the Workflow Model </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Represents the transferring of data, documents and tasks during the work </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provides step-by-step illustration of complex processes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Each step has specific requirements </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The steps are completed in specific order </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students are not able to skip steps </li></ul></ul>
  18. 23. Feedback <ul><li>Keep it Simple </li></ul><ul><li>Use workflow with teachers and chunk it for students </li></ul><ul><li>Good for collaborative projects </li></ul><ul><li>Have students create their workflows using this as a guide </li></ul><ul><li>Tutorial Type Website </li></ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul>
