Research is in a constant state of evolution due to rapid changes in technology. Forward-thinking librarians teaching 21st-century skills are focused on new ways to promote student-led discovery. One of these is in-depth research utilizing a variety of Internet-based tools and apps. ‘Smashing’ sites and apps--teaching students how to discover and curate information, cite sources, and create accurate research projects--is how librarians can help students develop these skills. Join this informative lively presentation, on how to engage students with new ways to learn to conduct research using new technologies to be incorporated at any level. Learn about a host of sites and resources offering multiple searches with a single sign-on, including new ways to search the Internet on a deeper level. Google Research and Drive will be explored, and new ways to create digital projects in partnership or in lieu of a traditional research paper will be shared.
