Student Research Tool
The internet can be a great research resource, but it is often troublesome verifying the information you have found.
The MOTAT Education Team are trialling a new digital education resource for our school visitors, designed to enable students to conduct their own research in a discerning and effective way.
There are 3 components available:
- A Student Led Research Chart to assist students in determining whether the information they have found is valid.
- The MOTAT Online Collection database lets students research items from the MOTAT collection in more depth.
- The Padlet Board is a collaborative platform for students to record the information they have found.
The first 2 components are found on the Padlet platform. This is a collaborative resource for students to work with kids from different classrooms and schools to collectively gather information.
The Padlet tool will be monitored by MOTAT Educators during this trial.
Once a month the Padlet site will be cleared. All research will be archived so students can still access their research.
