Book our session aimed at improving research skills for students in years seven to nine. Presented by State Library Victoria's education team, this interactive session is perfect for school groups undertaking research tasks.

This targeted lecture combines humour and practical strategies to motivate middle-year students to adopt more rigorous internet research practices.

Students will:

  • learn to identify and compare characteristics of credible versus unreliable websites
  • understand the importance of being a critical and creative thinker in today’s world
  • develop tips and tricks for more effective internet searches
  • cultivate their ability to evaluate online sources for credibility and relevance
  • examine the consequences when research goes wrong

All of our education programs complement the Victorian Curriculum and include follow up activities and resources.

This program is supported by the Percy Baxter Charitable Fund and Margaret Ross AM.
