Students often need a variety of ancillary skills in order to successfully complete all of the tasks for a project. These webinars address how to help students become more proficient in some of these tasks, including how to research, take notes, curate, summarize, and evaluate the information they find. They will also cover how to find and use primary sources, as well as share tools that will help students properly cite sources. An overview of copyright and Creative Commons licensing is included, along with an explanation of what students are free to use in their projects and what items may be subject to copyright. You will also discover ways to help your students build keyboarding skills even with the youngest students.

I am going to try and incorporate a couple of the ideas in several of my classes in the future.
