This is only a short read (couple of hundred words) about getting students to research a new task. It has a few suggestions that can be helpful when asking students to do internet searches on a new topic. It get the students thinking about prior knowledge and then allows the student to further understand what are the key elements they need to search. This eliminates the wasted time of students plugging in words that may not be key or useful in their search for knowledge. Only a quick read and could be helpful in our upcoming practical placement.
