Can you google that? – informationssökning på engelska | Mias klassrum Att internet flyttat in i våra klassrum är det ingen som har missat, men att det smugit sig in bland kunskapskraven är det många som missat, försöker låtsas om att de inte sett eller helt enkelt tycker är riktigt jobbigt. Men det finns ju där, vad vi än tycker om det. Det ska undervisas och bedömas, säga vad man vill om det. Att gå in på hur relevant och effektivt eleverna återanvänder sina sökresultat i sin egna produktion är en diskussion i sig, men nu tänkte jag fokusera på själva undervisningen. Can you google that? Som en del av övningen gör eleverna en självskattning, hämtad från bedömningsstödet. Efter genomgång och självskattning får eleverna öva på att söka information. Filen med övningen kan ni hämta här. Den som följt min blogg känner säkert igen frågorna, de är hämtade från det här inlägget. När vi avslutat denna övning kommer eleverna att få genomföra något av de olika prov som finns i Skolverkets bedömningsstöd.
