Handy skills being learnt in Global Perspectives!

In Year 10 Global Perspectives this week, our young global investigators learnt more about the art of research.

With an unprecedented amount of information now available at our fingertips online, research is now more daunting than ever. When deciding what to choose, and what to accept as fact or fiction, siphoning through reams of seemingly endless data and testimony can be understandably nerve-wracking - and confusing.  

So this week, these fears were allayed with an exercise in how to look for quality, fact and relevant information whilst keeping the topic simple, and universal - "what's the best mobile phone on the market today for the public"?

Students learnt to examine source quality by checking references, obtain good quantitative and qualitative information through factual based testimony and lastly - and perhaps most importantly - recommending a course of action or making a claim based on fact; in this case which phone is the best based on people's needs? 

It can be hard to divide what we think and what the evidence says is better or proven - but such is the art of good honest, empirical research. By learning these skills now, students at our school become more objective researchers and learners - and can write more balanced essays! It will be interesting to see which phone wins in lesson next week, but more importantly, what is the evidence for the win in a very competitive and personal marketplace - decided with evidence from across all age groups, nationalities and backgrounds - a concept at the very heart of Global Perspectives"! 

(Incidentally, a nod to the international nature of GP is contained in this week's headline; "Handy" is a German word for mobile phone).
