Teaching students to strategically navigate massive amounts of information that is available through multi-media has become a priority as we increase our demand for incorporation of evidence and reasoning in student work. And not only do students need to know how to strategically navigate and evaluate information from multiple media formats, they need to be able to use that media to strategically and collaboratively share information as well. Does how we teach ‘research’ need to change? How has it evolved?
