The British Library is working in partnership with Newcastle City Library and Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library to deliver Digital Pathways, which develops digital research skills through an enquiry-led session. Students form a research question and are led through a series of activities, all of which will assist in developing their critical thinking, information literacy and enquiry skills. Tasks will include the effective use of search engines, how to assess the reliability of online content, and a discussion on copyright and plagiarism issues. Having undertaken their research, the second part of the day will give students the opportunity to produce an output (for example a film, website or animation) which they feel will most effectively communicate their findings.
The project has been generously funded by the Sir James Knott Trust and Norwich Town Close Estate Charity.
