  • The difficult task to using Big6 with staff, is that they think it is just for research. I like the way you used a very common problem as an example and carried it out through out your presentation.

  3. 3. Learning Is Problem-Solving <ul><li>Is finding and using information to solve problems important to our students? </li></ul><ul><li>Can we teach a problem-solving methodology that will work for everyone? </li></ul><ul><li>Shouldn’t we all be using the same language with our students to teach “Information Problem-Solving?” </li></ul>
  4. 4. Problem: Making Ribs <ul><li>1. Task Definition </li></ul><ul><li>1.1 What do I want to know or do? </li></ul><ul><li>1.2 What information will I need? </li></ul><ul><li>How to cook delicious ribs </li></ul><ul><li>Where to buy ribs?

  10. 10. Shorthand: D PLUS E <ul><li>D efine the task/problem </li></ul><ul><li>P lan which sources to try </li></ul><ul><li>L ocate the best sources and find information </li></ul><ul><li>U se the best sources to gather information </li></ul><ul><li>S ynthesize the information by presenting it in some fashion </li></ul><ul><li>E valuate the product and the process </li></ul>
