Reflection: Student Ownership Online Text Features - Section 2: User Friendly Structures


Students required hands on practice in order to effectively use search engines and uniform resource locators to find key information for their search.  Once they have gained this experience by going online with their own laptops, students are able to explain the search process using online text features explicitly via an oral presentation that uses visuals.  Students are still developing their oral skills and often need visuals to help them remember what they are presenting. Overall, students were able to communicate clearly as evidenced by the oral presentation video of both students as they explain how they used key word searches and drop down menus as well as headings subheadings, color fonts, and embedded videos to facilitate and  enliven their search (see resource).
