Jenkins jr edu600 ip 3 digital research Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Digital Research Wilbert C. Jenkins, Jr. American InterContinental University Online Unit 3 IP
  • 2. Digital Research Definitions  Looking something up using the internet (IR, n.d.)  Gathering information for further understanding (IR, n.d.)  Repetitive & continuous searching, filtering, & citing sources with a critical and skeptical mindset to discern useful content (Gil, 2012)
  • 3. Digital Research. A21st Century Skill Content is digital, voluminous, & ubiquitous in this 21st Century Success is linked to quick successful separation of useful information Digital research skills are acquired the old fashion way—Practice use daily
  • 4. Digital Research & Education! What’s the Connection? The 4C’s-and 3R’s are involved Discerning worth and relevance of information is at stake Surveys of 21st century learners identify:  an inability to formulate sound search queries,  have poor to no strategies for poor results,  have difficulty deciding value of resources discovered(Moran & Firth, 2011)
  • 5. Research Context Sources Web sites  Pages of mixed-media content-text and media  Blogs  Single or group of authors write about an interest subject  Wiki’s  Multi-author pages easily edited which allow easy publishing  3 Activity, 2012)
  • 6. Research Content Sources(cont) Pod Casts  Audio recordings posted to web to be accessed by computer or mobile device  =9911203 Resource Data Bases  Online collections of content  3 Activity, 2012)
  • 7. Digital Research Components Data Sources  Primary & Secondary Resource Management  RSS & Atom Research Process  Search Engines  Strategies
  • 8. Data Sources--3 Primary  Document/artifact created at time of occurrence—inside view/actual source of information  i.e. Autobiographies, Films, Clothing, Manuscripts, Raw Research Data Secondary  Interpretive/analysis of primary data—1 step removed data  i.e. Encyclopedia’s, Political Commentary, Text Books Finding Tools  Research tools leading to discover primary & secondary sources  i.e. Online Library Catalog, Specialized Data Bases (Primary Sources, 2010)
  • 9. Resource Management Really Simple Syndication RSS  Service to Push change data to subscriber  Web page services indicator (RSS, n.d.) Atom—2 Standards  Syndication standard=XML language for Web feeds  Protocol standard=HTTP protocol to create and update web resources (IR, n.d.)
  • 10. Research Process Search Engines:  Standard/Common ,,,  Meta Search Engines ,  Comparative Search Engines , Searchenginewatch.gom  CreativeCommon Search Engine  Not a search engine; access point to search engines
  • 11. Research Process (cont) Strategies for Effective Searching  Boolean Search  Phrase Search  Homonyms, Synonyms, & Variations  Search within results  Domain & Site results (Web Search, n.d.)
  • 12. Research Process (cont.) Strategies for Effective Searching (cont)  Trimming a URL  Title & URL Searching  Advance Searching  Alternative Search Engine  Meta Searching (Web Search, n.d.)
  • 13. Digital Research and Learning Digital Research Skills are essential skills to create a culture of learning to acquire and maintain the 21st century learner a competitive ability in the global economy of this digital time (Unit 3 Activity, 2012)
  • 14. Conclusion Digital Research is an ability of essential skill for the 21st Century Learners of the 21st Century need strategies to acquire research skills A culture of learning is a cyclic process Research skill acquisition is a competitive edge for 21st Century learners in every regard
