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
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)
Research Context Sources Web sites Pages of mixed-media content-text and media http://www.allabouthistory.org/native-american-history.htm Blogs Single or group of authors write about an interest subject http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetorch/2012/07/23/156913101/lighting-the-torch- Wiki’s Multi-author pages easily edited which allow easy publishing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Technology(Unit 3 Activity, 2012)
Research Content Sources(cont) Pod Casts Audio recordings posted to web to be accessed by computer or mobile device http://www.npr.org/rss/podcast/podcast_detail.php?siteId =9911203 Resource Data Bases Online collections of content http://eric.ed.gov/(Unit 3 Activity, 2012)
Digital Research Components Data Sources Primary & Secondary Resource Management RSS & Atom Research Process Search Engines Strategies
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)
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.)
Research Process Search Engines: Standard/Common Google.com, Live.com, MSN.com, Yahoo.com Meta Search Engines Dogpile.com, Metacrawler.com Comparative Search Engines Pandia.com, Searchenginewatch.gom CreativeCommon Search Engine Not a search engine; access point to search engines
Research Process (cont) Strategies for Effective Searching Boolean Search Phrase Search Homonyms, Synonyms, & Variations Search within results Domain & Site results (Web Search, n.d.)
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.)
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)
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
