ICT Skills for Teachers

Manage research references (Intermediate level)

Ideally you want your students to access and reference information from a range of sources to create new knowledge. Managing these multiple resources can become a challenge for the student. Microsoft OneNote helps them to access and reference these notes with a feature called Linked Notes. As a teacher, the record of research that Linked Notes keeps helps you to see the evidence of their research and assess that skill based on this evidence. In this scenario we imagine that you have given your students a project about deforestation and the students use One Note to manage their information sources.

By the end of this task you could achieve the following outcomes:

Download an example - Start OneNote
- Create a Linked Note
- Record research
- Manage sources of information

You are welcome to copy this scenario demonstration step-by-step, but ideally you should apply these skills while conducting your own research.
