    I am excited to hear about all the resources you guys use all across the county! #rcstechchat
  • Cing_EdTech Sep 25 @ 8:11 PM EDT
    A1: I use several resources! My favorite resource is the Gale Periodical Database in the TEL bc Ss can save articles directly to OneDrive & annotate & highlight articles. They can also sign into TEL & save articles into files for each project! https://t.co/VzkJpyDTFV #rcstechchat
  • TechCoachErin Sep 25 @ 8:11 PM EDT
    A1: The Tennessee Electronic Library has the BEST research resources for almost every class! It's free for Ss & the information is credible. It also interfaces with all of our Office 356 resources, so it's easy for our Ss to save & annotate! https://t.co/hQ4BEHAO7d #rcstechchat

    A1 cont.: For online sources, I always point my students toward academic search engines, like https://t.co/fE8zj2o1Hp and https://t.co/nHcb0ltZWK #RCSTechChat
  • smithstrcs - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:12 PM EDT
    A1 Since I taught 4th grade, we used Kiddle for safe online research. #rcstechchat
  • AmandaRuvolo Sep 25 @ 8:12 PM EDT
    A1: When I will be in the classroom the resources that I will use JSTOR and EBSCO to look up secondary sources. #ElonEd #rcstechat #rcstechchat
  • SHSBettag Sep 25 @ 8:12 PM EDT
    A1 I use our library media center link on our website. They have a research tab that takes you to the Gala Resources. Students can use this link at home and it provides research and citation links. #rcstechchat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • bballshowcase Sep 25 @ 8:12 PM EDT
    A1 in class I would use TELNET to show students how to research educational articles through the Tennessee online library. #rcstechchat

  • AdamJonesAJ Sep 25 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    A1 Since I teach P.E. the only research resource I use is the internet. The things I most research are new activities/games that get EVERYONE active and moving. Also I'll research effective ways of how to organize big classes in the gym. #rcstechchat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • DBoydsClass Sep 25 @ 8:14 PM EDT
    A1 I try to point my kids in the direction of reliable source such as museums, universities, encyclopedias, etc. In middle school, we don’t get to spend a ton of time on research. I do insist they avoid all WIKIs and any editable sites. #RCSTechChat
  • smithstrcs - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:14 PM EDT

  • MrsMuccione Sep 25 @ 8:15 PM EDT
    A1: in my art class I always direct students to specific resources based on the artist, whether it’s https://t.co/aTXDHGfKnp or a specific artists own museum such as https://t.co/9u01iPUwKF. The more specific the website the more information the students can obtain #rcstechchat

  • MisterQuarles Sep 25 @ 8:15 PM EDT
    A1, a wise tech coach once showed me the "researcher" feature in the "references" tab in Microsoft Word. This allows us to focus students in a credible and controlled method of research based on the chosen topic #rcstechchat

  • tcarey98 Sep 25 @ 8:15 PM EDT
    A1: Kiddle and TEL resources. Keeping K-5 kids safe from random Google searches is critical. #rcstechchat
  • smithstrcs - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:15 PM EDT
    Wait, what?!?!? Unfriended... #rcstechchat
  • mylifeasatechie - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:15 PM EDT

    Q2 is coming in 1 minute. Remember your answer format should be A2 & include #rcstechchat.
  • AMorrisTN_Teach Sep 25 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    A1: For history electronic data bases are important like JSTOR and TEL. We visit the Library of Congress, National and State Archives, Gilder Lehman, and similar. TeachingAmericanHistory is good as well as AmericanRhetoric. #RCSTechChat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • Jillian30469908 Sep 25 @ 8:17 PM EDT
    A1: One great resource is https://t.co/mLu9ALwWhg, which has excellent leveled content and even assists students in organizing their research once they've collected it. https://t.co/fHqjOZfKQK #rcstechchat
  • TechCoachErin Sep 25 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    Q2: Share a specific assignment where you required your students to conduct research. What are student strengths & weaknesses when they go through the research process? How did you help them with their weaknesses? Don't forget to answer with A2 & #rcstechchat
  • PattersonPals Sep 25 @ 8:18 PM EDT
    A1- we start easy in Sept. with 3rd graders @kiddle @Google @AnnieAndMoby @Dictionarycom #rcstechchat
  • MisterQuarles Sep 25 @ 8:18 PM EDT

    I actually forgot about TEL until someone else mentioned. Our librarian is really good about going over TEL with the kids. #RCSTechChat
    • Cing_EdTech Sep 25 @ 8:16 PM EDT
      Be sure to check out the Tennessee Electronic Library!
      In reply to @DBoydsClass
  • Cing_EdTech Sep 25 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    A2: I've had students research a career they are interested in, the requirements/education, possible income, etc. Student strengths would be that they are pretty savvy when searching the internet. Weaknesses is that they don't evaluate sites thoroughly for validity #RCSTechChat
  • jellison23 Sep 25 @ 8:19 PM EDT
    A2 right now, students are researching passion projects based around @TheWorldsLesson - something that will end extreme poverty, end inequality or help stop climate change - they are looking for projects that other kids have done #techdoinggood #rcstechchat
  • Cing_EdTech Sep 25 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    A2 cont.: Students have to learn what to look for when evaluating websites and it can be confusing. So I direct them to academic search engines where the results have already been vetted by experts, so they know that all of their results are credible. #RCSTechChat
  • TechCoachErin Sep 25 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    A2: Ss researched a specific stage of genocide then summarized findings to post on @Flipgrid so other Ss could learn about it. Strengths: finding credible information by using TEL. Weaknesses: plagiarizing instead of summarizing & using non-credible outside sources. #rcstechchat
  • smithstrcs - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    A2 We had a MILLION people to "know" in 4th grade Soc. Studies, so my Ss did a @sway. Very easy to pull images! Research was done on Kiddle. We discussed legitimate info. & how you could tell w/ an activity about the Tree Octopus. #rcstechchat
  • SHSBettag Sep 25 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    A2: Medical Ethics paper. Have to research opposing viewpoints. Students find it easy to write on things they agree with but the con part of the paper is challenging. Using the opposing viewpoints gives them the ability to research both sides. #rcstechchat.
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • AmandaRuvolo Sep 25 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    A2: While I'm still a student myself, I think the hardest part for students is the beginning steps of understanding where to look for sources. Teachers can assist by pointing them in the right direction and showing them appropriate resources. #rcstechat #ElonED #rcstechchat
  • smithstrcs - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:20 PM EDT
    Your students are so lucky to have you! YOU are amazing! #rcstechchat
    In reply to @jellison23, @TheWorldsLesson
  • TechCoachErin Sep 25 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    A2 cont: I saw how the Ss didn't see a difference between credible info found on TEL databases & things they found on a Google search. We paused & discussed validity of sources, why we can't trust everything on Google & why a database would be a more reliable source. #rcstechchat
  • jellison23 Sep 25 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    A2 also have looked a short biographies of people who overcame adversity - and then built a @BloxelsBuilder game that taught about them #researchandgaming #randg #rcstechchat
  • mylifeasatechie - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    A2- My fave was research for Black History Month!A weakness was always what facts were most important.I tried to tie it back into main idea. This was for 3rd grade. Im sure the struggle is different for older grade #rcstechchat
  • PattersonPals Sep 25 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    A2- while learning the 50 states and capitals, ss chose a state from their specific region and researched pre determined questions using @kiddle and @googleearth Then made a PPT of findings. The biggest weakness was learning to navigate @googleearth #rcstechchat
  • AdamJonesAJ Sep 25 @ 8:21 PM EDT
    A2 One lesson/conversation I had with my students went down the road of finance. I had them research, if making 40K/year, how much on average would go to taxes, bills, loans, insurance, car payments and rent. #rcstechchat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • bballshowcase Sep 25 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    A2 I required my Economics class to research different types of businesses and how franchises are formed. The strengths my students showed was the ability to find sites that answered the question but weakness was they refused to dive into content of the site #rcstechchat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • MrsMuccione Sep 25 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    A2: had created my Art 4 class notebooks using OneNote and assigned each student an artist that they had to research. Weaknesses: finding credible sources so I provided specific websites to help guide them to finishing credible information. #rcstechchat
  • smithstrcs - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    One of my fav. lessons for teaching credible sources: https://t.co/tn0dG3m87p #rcstechchat

    In reply to @MisterQuarles, @Cing_EdTech, @TechCoachErin
  • DBoydsClass Sep 25 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    A2 They also don’t understand credible sources. I have to go through examples with them and limit the sources they use. They also don’t like to do anything from a book. They want to copy/paste from Google (and they think it’s a source too). #RCSTechChat
  • AdamJonesAJ Sep 25 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    A2 They were good with moving through websites but struggled with understanding the information. #rcstechchat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • bballshowcase Sep 25 @ 8:22 PM EDT
    A2 to develop their weakness we worked in pairs and I modeled how to dive into complicated text to develop a well though out answer. #rcstechchat

    In reply to @jellison23, @TheWorldsLesson
  • jellison23 Sep 25 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    A2 I think the biggest weakness with any research is that my students only skim -read the information. They've got so much credible material available but don't dig in #rcstechchat
  • MrsMuccione Sep 25 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    A2 cont: strengths were that students were able to currently use that information and cited correctly #rcstechchat
  • AMorrisTN_Teach Sep 25 @ 8:23 PM EDT
    A2: Wow, so many thoughts for this. I typically assign a long term research paper- sometimes its a choice topic or other related to National History Day theme. S- Picking topic to "own", W- Evaluating credible sources, proper Chicago format, not procrastinating #RCSTechChat

  • AMorrisTN_Teach Sep 25 @ 8:25 PM EDT
    A2: Continued. I also had students develop collective websites using Google Sites and sometimes Wix. We did an electronic timeline and on certain themes in American History (expansion, slavery). Navigating the platform was their S, but effective writing is W. #RCSTechChat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • TechCoachErin Sep 25 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    Q3: How do you teach your students about plagiarism & copyright infringement when conducting research for an assignment? Don't forget to answer with A3 & #rcstechchat
  • smithstrcs - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    A3 I tell them they'll go to jail. #rcstechchat
  • LoverofYAbooks Sep 25 @ 8:26 PM EDT
    My name is Kimberly and I’m one of the media specialists at Riverdale. Sadly, I’ll be staying home to complete homework for my last semester at TWU. #rcstechchat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin, @Cing_EdTech
  • Cing_EdTech Sep 25 @ 8:27 PM EDT
    A3: Requires pre-teaching before research begins. Ss must be taught the differences between direct quotes, summarizing, and paraphrasing and when to use each one. We also have to show them how to use Google Advanced Search to narrow image results by usage rights. #RCSTechChat
  • TechCoachErin Sep 25 @ 8:27 PM EDT
    A3: It's important to take time before assigning research to practice direct quotes, paraphrasing, & summarizing. These are necessary skills in all classes, not just English. If we ask students to conduct research, we must teach them how to properly utilize the info. #rcstechchat
  • Jillian30469908 Sep 25 @ 8:27 PM EDT
    I bet they learned a lot doing that. When we talk MONEY, they LISTEN! :) #rcstechchat

    A3 When I taught freshman English, I even had to teach the PARENTS -- they seemed to think if "your reorder the words, it is all good." LORD HELP US #rcstechchat
  • MisterQuarles Sep 25 @ 8:27 PM EDT
    A3: We talk about "intellectual property" and ethics to make sure they understand the importance of proper citations and the ethical, academic, and possible legal repercussions of plagiarism. #rcstechchat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • smithstrcs - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:27 PM EDT
    A3 pt. 2 In 4th grade, we are just beginning to cite sources, so learning to simply give credit is a BIG deal! #rcstechchat
  • TechCoachErin Sep 25 @ 8:28 PM EDT
    A3 cont: The same is true about showing students how to find copyright-free images. We can't assume that students know that they can't just copy any image that they find on a Google search. We have to discuss with them & model how to find what they need. #rcstechchat
  • SHSBettag Sep 25 @ 8:28 PM EDT
    A3 I have a sheet that explains plagiarism and copyright infringement. We discuss this together and go through examples that I include. They then sign the sheet stating they understand the concepts. #rcstechchat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • AmandaRuvolo Sep 25 @ 8:28 PM EDT
    A3: I think the best way is to start by explaining what digital citizenship is and then delve into explaining how when you write a paper, you need to support it with other sources. In order support your argument effectively, you must cite! #ElonEd #rcstechat #rcstechchat
  • jellison23 Sep 25 @ 8:28 PM EDT
    A3 I boosted a picture one of my Ss had made online and told everyone it was mine. She knew, but her friends were TICKED! Then they were pretty open to thinking about stealing other people's stuff #rcstechchat
  • PattersonPals Sep 25 @ 8:28 PM EDT
    A3- with 3rd graders, I just simply say we don’t want to “steal” someone else’s words or hard work. We want to do our own hard work and show what we’ve learned in our own way. They learn the term #plagiarism #rcstechchat
  • TechCoachErin Sep 25 @ 8:29 PM EDT
    A3: some quick tools for copyright free images: https://t.co/qSPHtqHSYT https://t.co/jhu8qkRr26 An exhaustive list: https://t.co/ri38mYeiAd Or, filter the pics on a Google search by clicking tools, usage rights, & labeled for reuse. #rcstechchat

  • bballshowcase Sep 25 @ 8:29 PM EDT
    A3 I discuss plagiarism with students. Probably need to do more so hey understand that coping and pasting lines from websites is plagarism@and not authentic research. I show them what copyright infringement is and what effects it has. #rcstechchat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • MrsMuccione Sep 25 @ 8:29 PM EDT
    Q3: I show my students a source and then follow with two examples. One example is plagiarism showing blatant copying and then also summarizing without changing enough of the articles words. We highlight all the ways the writer plagiarized from the source. #rcstechchat
  • tcarey98 Sep 25 @ 8:29 PM EDT
    Agree. In 3-5 we are still learning the practices of citing. The concept of intellectual property is still a step or two away. Especially, if they still are working on reading comp/fluency. #rcstechchat
    In reply to @smithstrcs
  • krrigsby69 Sep 25 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    A2-3rd grade Kiddle to research adaptations & how they are essential to survival in an environment. After searching, the info that popped up w/links is all they thought they had found. Unaware they could click on the links! Amazed! #rcstechchat I assume nothing these days!
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • AdamJonesAJ Sep 25 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    Q3 They need to be able to summarize. Or if they'd prefer to take the full information they must cite they website/author. This is such a important skill, especially moving forward with college. #rcstechchat
    In reply to @TechCoachErin
  • LoverofYAbooks Sep 25 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    A1: We use TEL for research. We walk through the databases and the purpose for each. We also walk through the setup of the results for searches in different databases and the tools for the articles. We also do an MLA boot camp and refresher with upper grades. #RCSTechChat

      A3 We do talk about it from a “stealing” information standpoint as well. Unfortunately, some of the plagiarism stems from simple laziness rather than the intent to steal information. I have demonstrated how I can find info they have copied as well.
  • AMorrisTN_Teach Sep 25 @ 8:30 PM EDT
    A3: Oh SO important! I typically pull college syllabi and code of conduct in relation to explain serious consequences. We discuss and typically have examples where they have to work in groups to decide "Plagiarism or Not". I need a catchy game show song... #RCSTechChat #addquotes

    Great job so far!! Let's keep this great discussion thread going! Q4 is coming your way in 1 minute. Remember your answer format should be A4 & #RCSTechChat
  • Jillian30469908 Sep 25 @ 8:33 PM EDT
    A3 I ALWAYS tried to put the fear in them. I told them about students losing scholarships, being kicked out of school, etc. It's one of 50,000 life lessons so many of our kids need! #rcstechchat

    This is so important and I am so glad you shared this! A lot of people do not know this is there! #RCSTechChat
  • Cing_EdTech Sep 25 @ 8:34 PM EDT
    Q4: What do you tell your students to look for when evaluating a potential internet source for validity and accuracy? Don't forget to answer with A3 & #RCSTechChat
  • tcarey98 Sep 25 @ 8:34 PM EDT
    A3: Intellectual property is such a complex arena in 2018. Copyright law can't really keep up with the publishing methods that exist today. I don't know how you high-school folks do it. =) #rcstechchat
  • smithstrcs - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:34 PM EDT
    A4 Spelling, ads, anything that sounds "off", NOT Wikipedia. #rcstechchat
  • TechCoachErin Sep 25 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    A4: I tell students to ask the 5 Ws: Who wrote it? What is the purpose of the information? When was it written/updated? Where was it published (in a scholarly source, on Facebook, self-published)? Why is this info the best/most relevant? #rcstechchat
  • Cing_EdTech Sep 25 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    A4: I tell Ss to look for the publication or last revision date. Look for the author and do a little side research--is he/she considered an expert in the field? Is the site objective or does it contain bias or slanted reporting? Does it corroborate my other research? #RCSTechChat
  • SHSBettag Sep 25 @ 8:35 PM EDT
    A4 Since we use ours for medical research, dates are important. They cannot use articles older than 5 years. They also have to only use journal articles, .org, .edu, or .gov sites. NO WEBMD:( #rcstechchat

    A4: In elementary, we are typically pre-selecting for safety purposes. Vetting validity and accuracy comes later. #rcstechchat
  • MrsMuccione Sep 25 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    A4: I always have students look to see when it was written or updated to see if the information is valid anymore. I also have the students look at who published it, and who wrote it #rcstechchat
  • LoverofYAbooks Sep 25 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    Q2: we were working with an ACT review class and the students took an interest inventory and then had to research jobs in that field. They didn’t know how to cite their findings. We conducted a MLA 101 review for in-text citations and works cited page. #RCSTechChat

    Wikipedia is a big No No in my class. #RCSTechChat
  • Jillian30469908 Sep 25 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    A4: I tell them to stick to places associated with education. Look for spelling mistakes and just poor content to sniff out JUNK #rcstechchat
  • mylifeasatechie - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:37 PM EDT
    A4- I tell them to look at the Author: is there one? Are they credible. Date: is it still relevant? Domain: domains .com,.org,& .net can be purchased and used by anyone. But .edu is reserved for colleges and universities, & .gov is a government website. #RCSTechChat
  • AdamJonesAJ Sep 25 @ 8:38 PM EDT
    A4 Make the sure the author/writer of the content is somewhat respected and has written info before. This requires a little extra research but so many people can just post things/opinions that people just take for facts. #rcstechchat
    In reply to @Cing_EdTech
  • bballshowcase Sep 25 @ 8:38 PM EDT
    A4 I tell mine to stick to websites that are credible. Or end w .org .edu instead of just .com. I also talk with them about cross checking facts from one site to others to determine validity. #rcstechchat

    Q3: We talk about what it is and the consequences it has. When we talk about money it hits home. We talk about how they can get a 0 for a college course and they’d be out $2000 or could lose a scholarship their ears perk up. #RCSTechChat

    Sometimes they do have credible sources listed at the bottom however. So as a starting point in that regard, it can be helpful. They still have to evaluate the sources though. #RCSTechChat

  • TechCoachErin Sep 25 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    A5: Yes! BibMe or the Word references tab are both excellent citation generators. A citation exists to give proper credit to the source creator, so I'd rather the Ss use a generator instead of submitting an incorrect citation or none at all! https://t.co/WkziSO69gA #rcstechchat
  • Cing_EdTech Sep 25 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    A5: I teach my students the MLA format of bibliographies in class, but if they need extra help, I direct them to EasyBib (https://t.co/aAbgSkkzJn), CiteThisForMe (https://t.co/cAOp8UkAep) or the citation generator built into Microsoft Word Reference tab! #RCSTechChat
  • Jillian30469908 Sep 25 @ 8:43 PM EDT
    How many of you have heard: "That's doing too much??!" when it comes to research? The kids have to know that quality research takes time and is actually worth sharing. #RCSTechChat
  • TechCoachErin Sep 25 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    A5 cont: If students use TEL resources, the articles already contain the citation. WIN! They can copy/paste or import into their bib. We should teach our Ss the WHY behind citations & what each part means, but let's take advantage of all the amazing tech out there! #rcstechchat
  • smithstrcs - Moderator Sep 25 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    A5 I didn't have a need for bibliographies in 4th grade, but I'd direct students to the generator in MS Word. #rcstechchat
  • SHSBettag Sep 25 @ 8:44 PM EDT
    A5 I do not use one due to fact that most sources on the TEL have the citations. If they do not I have them use a MLA manual to look up how to cite. This allows them to learn the process and they are able to use this in college or career world while doing research. #rcstechchat

  • AMorrisTN_Teach Sep 25 @ 8:50 PM EDT
    A5: I prefer to expose them to Chicago style for college history work. I'll provide them a cheat sheet with the most common citations used and then ask them to format from there. I like the Word citation/research since it helps with end notes, work cited, & tracks #RCSTechChat
