Evolving a Search

Researching just about any topic can start with a simple Google search.  That's fine, but what you find by doing this is just the begining...




1. Let's say you come across THIS SOURCE?

Think about these things:

  • Who is the real expert (or experts) on this topic mentioned in this article?
  • Given the information provided here, what might be your next step in researching this topic in greater depth?




2. HERE IS AN ARTICLE from the BBC that explains the relationship between social media use and how we view ourselves.   



  • Is the author of this article an expert on the topic?
  • Who is the expert mentioned in the article? (hint: look down by the bro taking a selfie)
    • Can you find any research articles that she actually wrote?
