Through Larry Ferlazzo’s blog (by the way, I encourage you to subscribe to his blog), I recently learned about Rutgers’ Riot. Rutgers’ Riot is an animated research tutorial. It plays like a five part animated movie. Each part of the movie features characters explaining an aspect of the research process. The five parts are selecting a topic, finding sources, choosing keywords, identifying citations, and evaluating sources. There are text documents available to accompany the videos.
Applications for Education
Rutgers’ animated research tutorial could be a good resource for introducing or refreshing research techniques in a clear and simple way.
